Living the Domestic Interior: Seven Characters in Search of Home in Vancouver, 2008-2010

Book: Sociology of Home: Belonging, Community, and Place in the Canadian Context

The first Canadian collection of its kind, _Sociology of Home_ draws on sociological approaches to family, urban and rural communities, and migration and immigration to discuss the idea of “home”—an intensely personal concept that is, in its varying iterations, bound to larger economic and political systems.

Moving from private homemaking to community building and political ecology, authors investigate home as a constructed space within the context of a diverse set of cultural, political, built, and natural landscapes that ground Canadian experiences. This comprehensive introductory reader explores a diversity of homes and homemaking and is an important contribution to the sociological studies of home, family, environment, gender, and social inequality.
