Small-house neighbourhoods in times of change

The purpose of this study of an old district with small houses is to observe changing living conditions in Gothenburg over a period of 100 years, through inhabitants’ narrations and reflections. From a democratic cultural-heritage perspective, it is important to give different groups in the society the opportunity to tell their memories from homes and neighbourhoods. This case study concerns a district where many working-class families settled down in the beginning of the 20th century, and where generation changes have resulted in different kinds of transformations. The purpose of giving attention to homes in small houses is also to discuss other issues than those generally analyzed in the field of living research with focus on newer suburban blocks of flats. This research project is organized in co-operation with the Institute of Language and Folklore in Gothenburg (see www.sofi.se).
