Event Details

The (Dis)Comforts of Home is a two-day symposium (13-14 September 2012) exploring how comparative cultural perspectives on the concepts of ‘home’ and ‘comfort’ can help us understand, learn from, and influence the behaviour that drives domestic energy consumption.

Generously funded by the Faculty Institute of Graduate Studies of UCL Faculty of Arts and Humanities, and the UCL Grand Challenge of Sustainable Cities.
