AISU Membership 2016
Dear Members and Sympathizers of AISU,
I hope this finds you well. As the end of this year is approaching, on behalf of the AISU Executive Board I would like to wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
During the last year our Association was engaged in several activities. The main one was the VII Congress “Food and the City”, which was held at the University of Padua, with a large number of participants (420, among them 160 foreigners). The proceedings will be published soon. Also, let’s not forget the half-yearly publication of our journal “Città e Storia”.
For next year we are planning a workshop, which will take place in Venice on April 29, and the topic will be “City and Workplaces” (the programme will be published soon). During the second part of the workshop we will host the discussion of the Proceedings of the VI AISU Congress (Catania 2013) and we will close with the annual AISU meeting.
For 2017, we would like to also remind you that the VIII AISU Congress will take place in Naples, probably during the first half of September (dates and title of the congress will follow).
We are happy to communicate that so far we have 164 members enrolled for the current year 2015. We would like to remind you to renew your membership for 2016 in order to allow us the organization of the new initiatives.
We invite you to visit at our website (www.storiaurbana.org) where you will be able to find all information about our Association, our books, congresses and – more in general – our activity.
Finally, as President, I would like to thank you very much for your loyalty and I hope to see you soon during our next meeting.
Again, I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
