As a growing metropolis, London is in the middle of a severe housing crisis, widely evidenced in the press and featuring in political debates. The problem of creating adequate homes for a growing demand is not new. The Centre for Metropolitan History (IHR), in association with the Survey of London (English Heritage) and the Urban Laboratory (University College London), is organising a two-day conference to explore issues relating to the history of urban or suburban housing from the mid-19th century to the present day. This conference will seek to examine the history of housing provision in London, and how historical research may be mobilised to address the contemporary crisis.
Keynote speakers: Professor Jerry White (Birkbeck), Professor Andrew Saint (Survey of London, English Heritage).
