Focusing on the home as an enclosed space with its surrounding parameters, this international symposium aims to encourage dialogues between different areas of expertise and highlight how these new meanings have been experienced within different countries. It is hoped that these conversations will help to extend understandings of this fundamental aspect of being human. 


We welcome papers, posters and art works from a range of disciplines including, but not limited to, art history, art, history, literature, architecture, geography and psychology, that explore the physical and mental spaces of house and home. 


Possible themes include:

Home, house, shelter, dwelling.

Enclosure, boundaries and threat.

Home, identities and belonging.

Objects and rituals. 

Collecting for, curating in and choreographing the home.

Homes in the mind/distant homes. 

Cultural legacies of domestic objects.

The blurring of home and work – the work/house?

The studio home and domestic creative spaces. 

The domestic and the intimate.

The peripheries of home and outside spaces.
