Urban history is a broad and dynamic research area in which scholars from very diverse disciplines can encounter and inspire one another. At the same time, it is an area of research that can be explored and implemented in many different ways. In HOST the focus lies with cities in the early modern period and long nineteenth century, with special attention for the role of cities as catalysts for processes of economic innovation, social exclusion/integration, and political-institutional change.
