In Praise of a Scholarly Editor: Jim Kemeny, 1942-2020

Jim Kemeny (1942-2020) was the editor of Scandinavian Housing and Planning Research (SHPR) and its successor Housing, Theory and Society (HTS) from 1997 to 2005. His contribution was central in transforming SHPR to HTS, the leading (and only) housing studies journal focused on theory. More importantly, Jim was one the most influential sociologists of housing worldwide. His works on homeownership and welfare, rental housing regimes and the social construction of housing policies have inspired numerous researchers all over the world. Housing, Theory and Society and its publisher, Taylor & Francis, commemorate Jim by making a selection of his articles in SHPR and HTS as well as an interview with Jim accessible free of charge until 30th June 2021.

Housing, Theory and Society regards housing as a research topic embedded in wider issues of concern across the social and behavioural sciences. The journal accordingly aims to develop housing research as a theoretically sophisticated field spanning the diverse academic and professional disciplines concerned with such issues. It encourages innovative intra- and multidisciplinary research and academic debate on all aspects of housing as they intersect with behavioural, cultural, economic, political and social phenomena.
