Housing Studies Association Annual Conference 2023
Futures of Housing Justice
We are delighted to announce details of the next HSA Annual Conference and the opening of our call for papers and bursary applications! Our next hybrid conference will take place in Sheffield, between Wednesday 29th and Friday 31st March 2023.
Our 2023 conference Futures of Housing Justice will explore the theme of housing justice and equity, examining current issues in our housing sectors and what we can do to make access to housing in the future fairer for all. We hope to bring together experts, from academics (of all career stages), policymakers and practitioners to campaigners and activists, communities and those with lived experience from a range of disciplines and sectors to explore the foundations and future of housing justice. The conference will be a platform to examine our traditional understandings and approaches to housing, and to explore, promote and mobilise around effective and progressive solutions to current problems.
The conference is keen to cover (but is not limited to) issues of:
- Housing activism and politics
- Indigeneity, migration and communities
- Homelessness and homeless mobilities
- Intersectional inequalities in access to safe and secure housing
- Housing access, rights and management
- Housing quality, design and sustainability
- Housing and health
- Housing-related economics and policy
- Global and cross-sectional responses to housing crises
- Advances in housing theory and methodology
The conference is your chance to discuss these issues and ideas, and more, in a safe and inclusive space.
We warmly welcome contributions from UK-based and international researchers (within and outside of academia, from all disciplinary backgrounds and at all stages of their careers), policymakers and practitioners, campaigners, activists, and communities and contributions that consider both single country and comparative cases.
We hope to welcome as many of you as possible to Sheffield to enjoy the early career researcher workshop, some fantastic plenaries, a host of diverse papers and the conference dinner (which will include the announcement of the Valerie Karn Prize winner 2023 – an annual highlight!). There will also be opportunities for socialising and networking. But for those unable to attend in-person, there will be a great online offer – the plenaries will be live-streamed and there will be online paper sessions across the three days, so please do still join us! When submitting an abstract, you will be asked if you wish to present online-only.
Early-bird rates close on March, 1st 2023.
