Housing Studies Association - Conference call for papers

Published at: 5 February 2021

The 30th annual Housing Studies Association conference, 14 – 15 April 2021 (held virtually, British Summer Time) is the premier forum for the presentation of advances and research in housing theory and practice. This year’s theme is ‘Preparing for the future and learning from the past’.

The conference will explore contemporary housing through both retrospective and future-gazing analyses to ask: How should housing history inform the future of housing practice and research?

Advances in housing theory, and methodology over the last 30 years have been substantial, however many questions persist in housing theory and practice. This conference examines the use of historical methods in housing studies, considering predictions about the future shape of housing, whilst acknowledging the increasing spatial differentiation of housing markets and appreciating the longstanding causes of change within housing systems.

You can be involved in three different types of session (see further details below): - Present at a Paper session (Be one of 3 presenters in a session, for 10-15mins each and individual presentation questions) - Present at a Lightning session (Be one of 5-8 presenters in a session, for 3-5 mins each and group discussion) - Organise a Panel session (Choose a theme of your own choice and organise a format and panellists to create a bespoke session)
