No place like home: mapping out intimacies and relations between the private
and public spheres

Ph.D candidate Clara Cerdan (Paris 8), Professeur Nathalie Lemarchand (Paris 8)

This proposal deals with the home, as a space of intimacy that nevertheless constitutes a meeting place
of the private and the public spheres. Home is woven into the very fabric of our lives and is an important
site for geographical studies, at the intersection of cultural, social and retail geographies as well as urban
development. Our understandings of the home are deepened by a social geographic focus that
foregrounds the relations between material culture and spatial practices. Current researches on the
home are thus concerned with the political significance of domesticity, encompassing scales from the
domestic to the global. They explore the ways geographies of home are not only shaped by politics and
commerce, but also by inequalities in terms of culture, ‘race’, location, social class, gender and sexuality.
Geographies of home being both material and symbolic, we welcome case studies in different contexts,
and innovative approaches that transcend conventional boundaries. We invite contributions on a broad
array of topics, including but not limited to:

  • Analyzing the role of architecture and urban planning in shaping the domestic place.
  • Analyzing the cultural and social standardisation of home furniture through the geography of objects
    and the commercial offers by global and/or local companies.
  • How the notion of home evolves within diasporic communities, probing the interplay between
    homeland and hostland.
  • Scrutinizing the gendered facets of home and their intersections with class, age, sexuality, and race,
    revealing patterns of inclusion and exclusion.
  • How home and cultural identities intersects
