An Anthropology of Domestic Space

Edited by Irene Cieraad

Paper $19.95s    |    0-8156-2903-6    |    2006

Explores the practices and symbolism of domestic space in Western society.

"This volume on domestic space brings together research traditions that have never mingled before: art history, social history, women’s studies, design history, architectural history, cultural anthropology, ethnology, sociology, housing sociology, environmental psychology, material cultural studies and consumer studies. . . . The book displays the varied approaches that can be taken when studying domestic space and is a very interesting read."

"Amsterdam anthropologist Irene Cieraad edits this interdisciplinary collection of articles looking inward at Western urban living and examining what our homes reveal about our cultures and societies."
