We are excited to announce that our members were successful in obtaining new funding for their research from GAUK and START schemes. Congratulations!
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).
