Speaking as an individual and a little as the manager of the list, you are forgiven for your open ended request. We have gotten similar request over the 16 years of so the list has been around but not that often. I think a discussion of the specifics of research proposals -- topics and methodologies -- could be a good discussion here. Particularly if we had some folks knowledgeable about what has been done participating, which I think we might get. I do not know much about what Coho/US's Research Coordinator, Dr. Betsy Morris can do but it would seem like input from folks here could also be helpful if it can be focused. It seems to me that the big problem of cohousing continues to be the difficulty of getting it built which at fist seems to be quite different than "psychological/social aspects of cohousing". But with a little brainstorming I came up with a few thoughts... I wonder if "psychological/social aspects of cohousing" could be extended to "psychological/social aspects of recruiting a core group of people to build cohousing" (or keeping people involved). The Or the psychological/social aspects of various approaches to preliminary proposal development - on the range from one person making a plan to a cumbersome many people starting with a blank slate. Or psychological/social aspects of proposing cohousing in an inner city neighborhood where property is lower cost but not currently a popular place to live.
