This special issue of Housing, Theory and Society brings together four papers written
for a symposium that took place at the University of Tasmania to discuss the role of
theory in contemporary housing and urban research. As joint convenors of the
symposium we were conscious of the fact that though there is an emerging
community of scholars in housing and urban studies in Australia, the opportunities
for interaction are limited because of the large geographical distances between the
major conurbations. We were also aware that while a large amount of empirical
work has been commissioned in Australia through the auspices of the Australian
Housing Research Institute, much of this research is policy focused and the
opportunities for funding explicitly theoretical scholarship is limited.
