Samuel Avery-QuinnLooking for panelists on post-World War 2 urban renewal in small towns or the intersection of urban renewal and religious communities. My intended paper is on urban renewal in Pitman, New Jersey. Founded in 1872 as a Methodist camp meeting resort, by the late 1940s an economic boom strained the community’s infrastructure. Planning consultants from the University of Pennsylvania’s Fels Institute of Government proffered dire warnings for the community’s future and urged borough leaders to undertake urban renewal. To realize their dreams of prosperity, however, their plan called for the demolition of the historic camp meeting village in the central business district. This presentation explores how one misadventure in mid-twentieth-century urban renewal exposed competing discourses of landscape in one small town – discourses that were deployed as expressions of government power and small-business owner influence, but also redeployed by community activists to subvert those expressions of authority and power.

Jackson Smith/Pedro RegaladoLooking for panelists: "Illicit Work, Race, and the Urban Economy from Prohibition to the War on Drugs," This panel will explore the centrality of “dirty capital” (Jackson Smith) or “drug capitalism” (Pedro Regalado) to the urban economy in American cities. We will interrogate the relationship between processes of racialization and the heavily policed boundaries between licit and illicit work, paying close attention to how working-class politics have been shaped by this relationship. This panel will also bring together scholarly conversations about these dynamics during Prohibition with work on the War on Drugs in an effort to better understand the role of illicit work within the urban experience in the U.S. throughout the twentieth century. We are interested in submissions covering such topics as the drug economy, illicit alcohol production and distribution, sex work, illegal gambling, and more.

Ryan Reft and Adrianna Rosamilia
The intersection of race, drug abuse, and treament in urban America. Ryan's paper is on the confluence of methadone treatment, and responses by the black community in late 1960s early 1970s DC including black nationalism. Adriana is working on how black mothers struggling with addiction to crack were often subject to policing and surveillance rather than treatment. Would love a third panelist plus a commentator.
