The course will be organized in two main parts: • the housing framework – considering different types of housing, formal and informal, their regulations, the actors’ networks living and working around them, the beneficiaries and users; • the spatial, socio-economic, political implications of housing’s developments – phenomena such as gentrification, segregation, residualisation, conflicts. This course intends to provide basic knowledge on several fundamental aspects of the urban domain. The topic is relevant to address urban dynamics and policies, but at the same time it offers the chance to examine case-specific practices. The course cannot be comprehensive of all the shapes, forms and variations about housing and its effects/impacts, the classes aim to provide a starting ground, giving the opportunity to delve into specific aspects. The geographical focus won’t be limited on the Italian scenario, but will be extended as needed by the content. The course will provide multiple references (literature, projects, visual, audio), in order to develop PhD students’ understanding on the role of housing in the current society. There is any specific textbooks, but a plethora of sources to be used. The PhD students will be required to work in small groups during the course, studying references and case studies and presenting them to their peers. These exercises will be assessed in order to pass the course.
