Urbanarium A Place like Home: Community and Housing in Research
November 15 @ 1:00 pm - 5:30 pm
This symposium brings student researchers together to address the community and housing nexus.
The symposium hopes to spotlight student research and foster an environment where students can exchange ideas, connect, and collaborate with other researchers. We invite students to share their research, including research-in-progress, to submit an abstract to be included in this symposium addressing the community and housing nexus.
Homes are places in which people grow up, form relationships, work, study, and age. An inquiry into housing is not limited to physical structures, but also the social connections, well-being, and sense of belonging that are integral to where we live. The community and housing nexus refers to this relationship between where we live and the communities we are apart of or aspire to be apart of. Drawing on the interdisciplinary field of housing studies, this symposium aims to address critical themes in housing planning and policy, sociology, anthropology, health, gerontology, geography, and economics. We hope to facilitate meaningful discussions about what the changing landscape of housing means for our individual and collective communities, now and into the future.
