Stereotypes associated with the life in a housing estate through the eyes of ethnologic research. An example of the Lesná housing estate in Brno
In the submitted study we tried to point out the generally shared stereotypes and prejudices associated with the perception of the life of housing estate inhabitants in the Czech Republic; we focused on the Lesná housing estate in Brno. The research was conducted in the form of semi-structured interviews with informants and own observations of the life of local inhabitants. We have come to the conclusion that a housing estate is not necessarily a place of anonymity; on the contrary - where conditions are suitable (for example inhabitants ́life period, length of staying, architectural form of a concrete panel building), neighbour relations are often entered in. We also found out that housing estates do not have to serve just as a place to stay overnight, but they can become adequate residential city districts. The aim of the study also was to explain the above-mentioned topic and to clear the way for subsequent comparing research.
