More than ever before, the home features in books, magazines, Sunday newspapers and on television. Whether as a concept or a physical place, it represents a key site of personal development. In line with this there has recently been a move towards the domestic as the new 'avant-garde' in contemporary art and design practice. In stark contrast, however, the maintenance of home remains a daily struggle in many parts of the globe. But wherever we are, one thing is clear: 'home' is profoundly symbolic. The domestic sphere is a highly fluid and contested site of human existence that reflects and reifies identity and values. Regrettably, much of the dialogue around the home has taken place as separate conversations within disparate disciplines. This new interdisciplinary jourbanal is the first forum wholly dedicated to the critical understanding of the domestic sphere across timeframes and cultures. Heavily illustrated and handsomely designed, it addresses a range of topics, including but not limited to: the relationship between body and building, consumption, material culture and the meaning of home, design and new technologies, aesthetics and furbanishing, homelessness, politics, domesticity and social change, moving cultures, the social consequences of planning and architecture. Home Cultures invites submissions from design practice, design history, architecture, anthropology, sociology, archaeology, urban planning, contemporary art, geography, psychology, folklore, cultural studies, literary studies and art history.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"At last, a new international jourbanal that brings together and discusses many aspects of the domestic sphere, such as interior design, architecture, consumption, material culture and anthropology. It will surely be welcomed by scholars and practitioners alike."—Pauline Rae, Library Manager, Royal College of Art'
"Promises to be an innovative scholarly forum for a crucial research area that astonishingly has never yet had its own 'home'. Explorations of the domestic sphere and its boundaries will knit together some of the most exciting interisciplinary threads in material culture, consumption studies, design and many other research agendas."—Don Slater, London School of Economics
"This jourbanal demonstrates the freshness of the insights that await those who direct their attention to homes. Drawing on a wide array of fields, from art, design and architecture to anthropology and history, the articles show the crucial importance of domestic space to humanity at large."—Benjamin S. Orlove, University of California Davis
