Abstract

This book is about the manifold interpretations and readings to which the concept of home lends itself. The authors show that home is a socially constructed phenomenon, with blurry boundaries and not free of conflict. It also shows that individuals, experiences, language, social and legal structures as well as history shape our conceptions of home, which are constantly shifting and being reconfigured.

Because of its varied nature, home is a concept that allows for an interdisciplinary group of experts to provide an insight into how their ideas about such a quotidian concept can be shaped by their own work and explored through the lens of their disciplines.
