Methodologies in Housing Research
Datum: 22. – 24.09.2003
Ort: Schweden, Steiermark
Adresse: Stockholm, Schweden
This conference will address methodological issues in housing research. We see a need to develop a common understanding of methods for empirical research on quality, meaning and other aspects of people\\\’s experience of and involvement with housing.
The content of the conference will primarily be discussions of papers in groups organised in different themes, with discussants assigned for each paper. There will also be plenary sessions with keynote speakers and poster sessions. The proceedings will be published on a CD.
We welcome papers that explicitly address methodological questions such as:
1. What can we learn from quantitative and what from qualitative methods? Can researchers combine quantitative and qualitative methods to improve our understanding of complex issues?
2. What are the strengths and limitations of case studies in housing research?
3. How can the temporal dimension be incorporated into data and analysis to overcome the static interpretation common to most empirical studies?
4. How do we identify the structural relations between cultural, social and psychological factors related to the design, meaning and use of housing?
