Abstract [en]

Second homes have been on the research agenda for a considerable amount of time. Since the early 1990s, a renewed interestin second homes and second home research can be noted that also mirrors the global extension of the second home phenomenon.Still, second homes have received inadequate treatment in social sciences research. For example, despite the fact that most secondhomes are located in rural areas, they have seldom been addressed within rural studies. The article offers a review of second homeresearch with respect to issues raised, disciplinary affiliations, and related problems and shortcomings. The absence of second homesin rural studies is highlighted in particular. It is concluded that second homes should be brought back into rural studies, but alsothat the rural has to be integrated more clearly into second home research.
