Abstract:

In the continuum of intersecting housing crises, the impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic are still testing individual and collective capacities to survive displacement, surveillance, precarisation and policing. Issue 3.2 emerges in the context of normalised new and old crises; both from and within the fatigue and normalisation of current ‘exceptional conditions’ and their implications for housing activists and engaged academics, and from the search for places and languages of resistance as sites for transformation.
