Description: This panel places contemporary challenges in their historical context by bringing together three leading experts on the history of the related fields of architecture, housing, urban planning, and cities. Together, panelists will explore the ways the relationship between citizenship, housing, and the state transformed from the 1960s to the 1990s and how this transformation relates to broader social, political, and economic developments of the era. Drawing from the histories of France, the United Kingdom, and the United States of America, panelists will combine their own extensive research and the insights from their respective thematic and national foci. We hope this cross-disciplinary and cross-regional dialogue contributes to the understanding of the local, national, and global forces shaping the recent history of the welfare state and the rise of neoliberalism.

Co-sponsored by the Center for German and European Studies, the Center for European Studies, and the Critical Political Economy Seminar
