The Vienna International Summer School The Social Dimension of Social Housing offers an opportunity for inter- and transdisciplinary exchange for all participants. The programme of the Summer School includes the following formats:
the research projects of the participants will be presented and put up for discussion among peers and faculty members. The aim is to reflect, refine and deepen one’s own work and research approach with peers and internationally renowned scholars from different disciplines and universities.
various methodological approaches to housing research, such as housing biographies, housing statistics and socio-spatial analysis to participatory methods at the interface between research and community work will be examined in more detail along with the prospects of mixed designs.
on-site workshops with stakeholders, local actors and practitioners offer insights into the transformation of post-war social housing in Vienna.
public lectures and panel discussions by and with members of the international faculty on current questions of housing research.
