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 list was inspired by the successful symposium Protests as Events / Events as Protests. The conceptualisation of protests as events and vice versa involves consideration of the temporalities of protests as well as the mobilities that are enacted to bring together an assemblage that may be on the move or fixed at a still point. The symposium involved conversations between activists and non-activists, as well as academics as activists in order to explore the complex construction of protests as events / events as protests. The event was held at Leeds Metropolitan University in June 2013 (http://protestsandevents.wordpress.com) and covered the following topics: -Conceptualisations of protests as events -The academic/activist interface -Timings and rhythms of protests -Discursive constructions of protests -Protest and political tourism -Mobile assemblages and protests -Embodiments of protest events -Sustaining protests in the face of cultural changes -Protests and sports events -Critical hospitality and protests -Governance and the governmentalities of protest events

This list addresses a significant global risk that is largely neglected in research and policy. Fires cause over 300,000 deaths annually worldwide and leave millions with permanent injuries: 95% of deaths are in low- and middle-income countries. Burn injury risk is strongly associated with low-income and informal settlements, which are growing rapidly in an urbanising world. Urban fires exemplify a global problem that the UN Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR) defines as ‘extensive risk’: i.e. the widespread risk to repeated or persistent hazard conditions of low or moderate intensity, often of a highly localized nature, which can lead to debilitating cumulative disaster impacts. Fire policy and mitigation strategies in poorer countries are constrained by lack of data, capacity and resources. This list builds on existing informal collaborations involving UK universities, independent research institutions, international NGOs and fire and rescue services. It is open to anyone working on any aspect of this subject, from any country.
