In April 2017, the electronic medium urbanHIST Newsletter started to be published within the dissemination framework of EC-H2020 international project History of European Urbanism in the 20th Century (urbanHIST), where Department of History, Faculty of Arts at Pavol Jozef Šafárik University in Košice is one of the four main involved research centres and working places.
UrbanHIST Newsletter is issued on a quarterly basis, as a free-of-charge electronic medium. It is available on the project´s website (www.urbanhist.eu), on the official websites of urbanHIST beneficiaries and on urbanHIST social media (facebook and twitter).
The main priority of the newsletter is to provide the project team with a communication platform for exchanging research experience inside and outside the urbanHIST consortium. The quarterly creates space for sharing and receiving information and news about the urbanHIST project, its beneficiaries and partner institutions. It also provides an excellent opportunity for Early Stage Researchers (PhD students) to share information about their own research activities, present their expectations and opinions. Besides that, the periodical presents personal profiles and interviews, and introduces recent and stimulating publications, conferences and events with a thematic focus on urbanism and urban history.
In the first issue of urbanHIST Newsletter, you will learn not only about the urbanHIST project or its urbanhist.eu website, but also about significant project activities – such as the introductory consortium meeting in Weimar (Germany) in October 2016 and the selection procedure for 15 doctoral positions advertised within the urbanHIST project, which took place in Valladolid (Spain) in January 2017. The last page of the periodical introduces annotations of relevant publications and the report on the submission of the urbanHIST section at the 14th International Conference of Urban History EAUH 2018 in Rome.
We wish you a pleasant reading.
