Dr Emma Power
Senior Research Fellow, Western Sydney University
Dr Emma Power is a Senior Research Fellow in the Institute for Culture and Society at Western Sydney University. Emma's research program investigates the interconnection between housing governance and homemaking cultures through analysis of the politics of care and housing security; ageing, home and housing security; and companion animals in the city.
Emma’s current ARC DECRA research, 'Ageing, Home and Housing Security Among Single, Asset-poor Older Women', investigates how housing policy and governance, and ongoing housing mobility, inform how single older women who do not own a home create and maintain a sense of home and security.
