Building on a long period of scholarly interest in migration, travel, and other ways that people are divorced from a sense of home, the authors of this volume shift theory focus to the conceptualisation of home - in all its complexity and mutability. While giving ample room for literary readings of home, Constructions of Home also furnishes a rich assortment of essays from such disciplines as architecture, legal studies, cultural studies, and urban studies. Studying locales as varied as the suburban U.S., the cityscapes of the British Midlands, the public space of post imperial Ukraine, and postcolonial India, contributors consider the wider cultural context in which constructions of home are now situated. The volume thereby provides multiple perspectives that scrutinise home in its physical as well as its imagined forms, tracing back the tradition of its development and placing it alongside modern (re-)definitions. Constructions of Home begins a serious, even indispensable, exchange of ideas on a fundamental cultural concern.
