The papers on this panel explore the relationship between urban politics and long-term political change in Canada and the United States. Inspired by American Political Development and related approaches, these papers seek to explain how urban changes both shape and reflect larger processes of political development at the national scale. The panelists will explore the urban dimensions of important political changes, ranging from party system shifts to the rise of the carceral state, in Canada and the United States.
