The seminars and associated announcement list draws attention to the way that collaborative and congregated housing can play a fundamental role in carbon reduction behaviour, green technology adoption, and community resilience. Moreover, we stress the need to conceptualise resilience not only in terms of physical engineering to mitigate or withstand hazards and shocks, but also as social organisational capacities that facilitate affordable access, social cohesion and mutual support across diverse demographic groups. For instance, the cohousing model draws attention to the co-constitution of shared space, collective self-governance and the sense of trust and belonging that accumulates over time through shared meals and collective endeavour. The cohousing approach is collaborative in that it actively embeds self-managed governance structures in the life of the community in a deliberate attempt to increase purposeful interaction between resident members to improve overall quality of life.

This is a group for members and other academics related to European Sociological Association (ESA) Sexuality Research Network (RN 23). In contrast to the long history of medical and psychological interest in sexuality, the sociological understanding of sexuality is a relatively new phenomenon, spanning a history of some 40 years. However during this time the sociology of sexuality, through both empirical research and theoretical writing, has become an important feature of academic work at both a national and international level. This work has enabled sociology to develop critical alternatives to the essentialism present in mainstream research on sexualities. Similarly, significant links have been made between sexuality and other salient social identities, for example gender, race, class and nationality. Whilst acknowledging the importance of biology, contemporary sociologists of sexuality prioritize the relationship between the individual and society to show the ways in which sexual desires, practices, identities, and attitudes are conceptualized, categorized, deployed, and ultimately regulated through the social institutions and practices of different societies. These areas, together with issues relating to the theorisation of sexuality alongside methodological developments, is an form important foci for ESA Sexuality Research Network.

With a growing, renewed, interest in community currencies generally, and banking specifically, this group seeks to form a network of researchers exploring uses of time banks. Over ten years of development of time banking in the UK has led to new avenues for exploration which diverge from traditional community currency research. The focus on co-production and its similarity with the idea of a Big Society has led to time banks featuring in Labour and Coalition government strategy documents. The difficulty however is that most of the evidence base remains anecdotal, this group hopes to help address this issue in the following ways. Firstly it seeks to help enhance access to academic research already available in one centralised bibliography. Secondly it seeks to bring together a wide range of academics to provide space for sharing good quality research and facilitating future collaborative research. By pursing our aims we hope the group will become an invaluable, independent resource for policy makers and practitioners searching for evidence on time banking.With a growing, renewed, interest in community currencies generally, and banking specifically, this group seeks to form a network of researchers exploring uses of time banks.
