Call for papers

Housing Documentaries and Podcasts
The International Journal of Housing Policy is looking for contributions that interrogate the role that new and old media, such as housing documentaries and urban podcasts, play in academic, public and policy discussions about housing and cities. They are particularly interested in hearing from academics who have worked as or with film or podcast makers. Was this a form of 'academic engagement' or 'research impact', or is it problematic to think about this type of academic contribution in these terms?

Inquiry

Universities' involvement in the housing sector - Scoping study
A team of researchers at University College London are looking at ways in which universities, around the world, are developing responses to housing market pressures in their own cities/vicinities. This extends beyond the provision of student accommodation. They would like to hear from colleagues who are aware of practices and initiatives underway at their own universities - a sentence on what's happening and suggestions for contacts or sources of further information will suffice.
Use this link to the questionnaire and respond to David Fitzpatrick.
