Adela Petrovic’s GAUK project entitled “In the face of gentrification: the changing identities of working-class neighbourhoods in the inner-city of Prague” analyses two selected gentrifying inner-city neighbourhoods, Karlín and Smíchov, identifies the changes in the urban physical and socio-cultural landscape, reflects upon their implications, and investigates the identity construction of these changing neighbourhoods.
Another project, supported by the START programme, is “What about your locality? Life-course differences in experiencing and perceiving residential neighbourhoods” with Pavel Frydrych as the principal investigator and Marie Horňáková, Jan Sýkora and Niloofar Ghafouriazar as co-investigators. The project focuses on life-course differences in how residents experience, perceive and are satisfied with their residential neighbourhoods. It aims to approach the topic from perspectives of three population groups in various life-course stages and living in distinct neighbourhood types (children from suburbs, young families from housing estates, older adults from the inner city).
