The Financialisation of Housing and Australian Cities
Theme: Urban Geography
Session organisers: Charles Gillon and Nicole Cook (University of Wollongong)

This session concerns the financialisation of housing in shaping social, spatial, and political conditions of Australian cities. Viewing housing as a financial asset and investment instrument draws attention to home ownership. Despite a backdrop of unaffordability and strained supply, outright/mortgaged owner-occupation remains Australia’s dominant tenure form This session interrogates how owner-occupation is sustained, and with what consequences. We welcome papers exploring practices of property-owners and seekers in Australian cities, and or institutional logics and policy frameworks. Suggested themes include:

  *   Housing as financial resource and risk
  *   Affective and emotional dimensions of home ownership
  *   Everyday negotiations of debt and financial risk (including in changing climates); Market access and affordability; Generational inequity
  *   Owner-occupation and planning influence
  *   Investment properties, global financial flows, empty homes/apartments
  *   Alternatives for housing instruments and housing tenures
  *   Implications for policy cycles (Housing under/over supply; Negative gearing)
Cheers, Charlie
