IHR Winter Conference 2018: Home: New Histories of Living

This conference will host pathbreaking research exploring the ways the home has been thought about, utilized and lived within throughout history. These perspectives open the shutters on domesticity, by showing how patterns of homemaking can reshape our conceptions of kinship, consumption and the everyday.
