The Evidence Network for Renting has some good and bad news to share. We are sadly announcing the postponement of our inaugural conference until early 2021 (new dates to be confirmed). Covid-19 has affected everyone, and to ensure the safety of attendees and speakers, we feel that it is best to postpone until we have more certainty over safety. We wish to say thank you to the Housing Studies Association and the Institute for Social Responsibility at Edge Hill University for their support in establishing the network and for their support of our inaugural conference, and thank you to all those who have submitted abstracts for our conference. We will also be re-opening our abstract submission in the next few months to allow further submissions. 

Now for some more positive news. We are very pleased to announce that EN4R will be holding a special e-conference entitled 'Private renting in a time of crisis' on Thursday 18th June. It is a timely opportunity to reflect on the issues that have dominated the PRS literature to date, the PRS in the context of Covid-19, and what the implications of these are for the future. 

We have an excellent line up of speakers already confirmed, with more to announce in due course. For our e-event, we thought we would do something different, we have asked all speakers to pre-record their papers/sessions to enable attendees to watch and listen at their own pace and provide the opportunity for future engagement with the research. We will further have two live sessions where you will be able to ask questions and engage in friendly discussion with the speakers. 

Confirmed keynotes:

  • Dr Kim McKee (University of Stirling)

More to be announced in due course  

Confirmed speakers:

  • Dr Amy Clair (University of Essex)
  • Prof. Ken Gibb (CaCHE - University of Glasgow) 
  • Dr Jennifer Harris (CaCHE - University of Bristol)

  • Martin Farley (Green Party)

More to be announced in due course
