3rd Annual Australasian Housing Researchers’ Conference
Housing research for a sustainable affordable future 18-20 June 2008, hosted by RMIT University, Melbourne
The 3rd Australasian Housing Researchers’ Conference (AHRC08), hosted by RMIT University in Melbourne (18-20 June 2008) saw more researchers – from state, federal and local government, community and welfare groups as well as academics – take advantage of this opportunity to present, discuss and reflect on their recent housing research.
There was a record number of papers presented, some of which deepened our understanding of some well-known issues. Others considered these issues by asking different questions or brought to bear new theoretical frameworks that assist us in seeing things differently. There were also papers on emerging issues.
This third conference, AHRC08, builds on the work of the previous two, the first, in 2006 from Flinders University, Adelaide and the second the next year at Queensland University. There have been a small number of overseas participants at each conference, this year from Gazi University, Turkey and strong participation from New Zealand.
Sydney took on a challenge for 2009, with a joint conference with our neighbors, the 2009 APNHR + 4th AHRC Conference 2009 (5-7 August). The 2009 Housing Researchers Conference, jointly hosted by the UNSW City Futures Research Centre and the Swinburne University Cities Housing and Environment Program, combines for the first time with the Asia Pacific Network of Housing Research [APNHR] Conference.
A CD of AHRC08 refereed conference papers is available from firstname.lastname@example.org.
