I am currently investigating the social and economic implications of second homes (vacation homes and investment properties) using interview, survey, ethnographic, and textual sources. My focus is on the changing definition of family spaces in light of the sharing economy, a global pandemic, and shifting family roles and relationships. A preview of the research process can be seen here. Some elaboration of my questions are discussed in this blog post I wrote about vacation homes and the sharing economy.
