Nineteenth-century transnational urban history

Research output: Contribution to journal/Conference contribution in journal/Contribution to newspaperJournal articleResearchpeer-review

The aim of this article is to take stock of nineteenth-century transnational
urban history. After a short introduction to transnational history, general urban
histories are analysed with respect to the ways in which transnational perspectives
are incorporated into the narratives. Specific contributions to urban history in
a transnational perspective are analysed. Approaches to urban planning history
that focus on transnational linkages and international organization are discussed.
Approaches to urban history within enlarged geographical scales that go beyond
the nation-state framework, with a particular focus on cities as nodes in translocal
networks, are analysed. The article concludes with a critical discussion of
nineteenth-century transnational urban history.
