Special
 Section 
on 
the

 History
 of
 Urban
 House 
Numbering

 for
the
 journal
 Urban
 History

Street
 addressing 
is
 one
 of 
the 
most 
basic
 strategies
employed 
by 
governmental 
authorities
to
 tax,
 police,
 manage,
 and
 monitor
 the
 spatial
 whereabouts
of
 individuals
 within
 a
population.

 Despite 
the
 central 
importance
 of 
the 
street
address
 as
 a 
political 
technology
that 
sometimes 
met 
with
 resistance, 
few
 scholars
 have
 examined
the 
historical 
practice
 of
street
 addressing
 with
 respect
 to 
its
 broader
 social 
and
political 
implications.

 We
 would
 like
to
 invite
 those
 scholars
 with
 an
 interest
 in
 this
 subject
 to
contribute
 to
 a
 peer‐reviewed
special
 section
 of
 the
 journal
 Urban
 History
 that
 we
 are
organising
 on
 the
 histories
 and
geographies
 of
 urban
 house
 numbering.
 
 Articles
 should
 be
 no
more
 than
 8,000
 words
 in
length,
 with
 a
 preliminary
 submission
 deadline 
of
 December
15,
2010.

Each 
paper
 submission
 will
 go
 through
 the 
journal's
 regular
peer
 review
 process;
 however,
 it
will
 first
 be 
submitted
 to 
the 
special
 section
 organisers
(Reuben 
Rose‐Redwood
 and
 Anton
Tantner)
 for
 an
 initial
 screening
 prior
 to
 peer
 review.
 
 We
are
 particularly
 interested
 in
show casing 
recent
 work
 that
 links
 the
 history
 of
 urban
house 
numbering 
to
 broader
 debates
concerning
 the
 interrelations
 of
 space,
 knowledge,
 and
 power
that
 have
 animated
contemporary
 discussions
 in
 the
 social
 sciences
 and
 humanities.

 If
 you
 are
 interested
 in
contributing
 to
 this
 special
 section,
 please
 contact
 the
special
 section
 organisers
 at
 your
earliest
 convenience
 and
 provide
 a
 very
 brief
 description
 of
the
 proposed
 paper
 topic
 to
 be
submitted.

 We 
look 
forward
 to
 hearing 
from
 you.

Sincerely,

Reuben
