The editors of the Canadian journal Urban History Review are dedicating a future issue of the journal to the history of urban planning in Canada. The issue will be guest edited by Richard White, the historian of Toronto planning. Those interested in contributing should submit an abstract (in English or in French) of their proposed paper to him at firstname.lastname@example.org. The editors are defining ‘urban planning’ quite broadly, and are open to a range of topics, historical periods, and approaches. They are looking for any empirically based articles that add to our understanding of the agents or institutions that strove, successfully or not, to prescribe aspects of the physical form of Canadian cities, at any time in Canada’s history. Abstracts must be received before the end of the day 31 October 2017, and those selected for inclusion in the issue will be notified promptly. The editors will expect finished papers (between 6,000 and 10,000 words) by mid-March 2018, and plan to publish the issue in late 2018.
