Day Seminar on Housing and Well-Being : Exploring the Relationship and Policy Implications

Wednesday 14th January 2015,

Room 208, Henley Business School, University of Reading, Whiteknights Campus

10:00 am – 5:30pm (lunch will be provided)

The relationship between housing and well-being embraces housing as a physical object, a signifier of status and the embodiment of ‘home’. This day seminar will explore this complex relationship, from theory through to policy, touching on both qualitative and quantitative research. The program includes presentations from Professor David Clapham, Reading University and Paul Bradley of the Commission for Housing and Well-Being, as well as a round table discussion chaired by Dr Beverley Searle, University of Dundee.

We would like to invite papers from other researchers in academia or practice. We are particularly keen to support early career researchers.

Please submit your abstract (max 200 words) with your name and institution to: Chris Foye, PhD Researcher, School of Real Estate and Planning, Reading University (c.foye@pgr.reading.ac.uk) and Dr. Beverley Searle, School of the Environment, University of Dundee (b.a.searle@dundee.ac.uk).   The deadline for abstracts is Wednesday 10th December 2014. Applicants will be informed of the outcome of their application by 20th December 2014.

This event is supported by funds from the Housing Studies Association and is free to attend. In addition there are two early career researcher (PhD researchers or those who have completed their PhD within the last year) bursaries worth up to £125 each. Allocation will be decided by a panel on the basis of need and the relevance of the applicant’s research topic. To be considered, you must complete a bursary application form (if you don't already have one, please request one by emailing c.foye@pgr.reading.ac.uk) and return it to c.foye@pgr.reading.ac.uk and b.a.searle@dundee.ac.uk by 19th December, along with your abstract. 

HOW DO I REGISTER? Tickets are available on a first come first served basis via Eventbrite (this website). Limited places are available.   Please note you still need to register for a ticket even if you are submitting an abstract. You do not need to register through Eventbrite if you are applying for a bursary.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to email Chris Foye at c.foye@pgr.reading.ac.uk.
