Essays on The Sociology of Housing

CALL FOR PAPERS

Please find attached a call for papers on the Sociology of Housing.

In this edited volume, we seek to take stock of the current field of scholarship and provide new directions for the sociological study of housing. The collection of essays aims to both organize current research, highlight important aspects of the subfield, and provide a roadmap for sociological studies of housing. We expect authors to draw on diverse methodological approaches, present unique field sites and data sources, and foreground sociological theory to understanding contemporary housing issues. Chapter by chapter, we anticipate that the volume will generate promising directions for the sociological analysis of housing.

Proposals are due on March 13th. Additional submission details are in the attached flyer.
