Many disciplines including Sociology, Demography, Geography, Architecture and Urban Planning, Economics, Anthropology, and History are increasingly interested in "urbanism," particularly since much of the world is being converted into cities and vast metropolitan areas. A diverse group of scholars, who have employed different methods and a wide array of perspectives in their study of early cities, are featured at the Arthur M. Sackler colloquium "Early Cities: New Perspectives on Pre-Industrial Urbanism" scheduled for May 18-20, 2005 at the National Academies Building in Washington, D.C.

To facilitate the participation of younger anthropologists and social scientists, a number of travel grants will be available for graduate students and postdocs to help subsidize their travel to the conference.
