InHabit : People, Places and Possessions, Paperback / softback Book


Central to human life and experience, habitation forms a context for enquiry within many disciplines.

This collection brings together perspectives on human habitation in the fields of anthropology, archaeology, social history, material culture, literature, art and design, and architecture.

Significant shared themes are the physical and social structuring of space, practice and agency, consumption and gender, and permanence and impermanence.

Topics range from archaeological artefacts to architectural concepts, from Romano-British consumption to the 1950s Playboy apartment, from historical elite habitation to present-day homelessness, from dwelling "on the move" to the crisis of household dissolution, and from interior design to installation art.

Not only is this volume a rich resource of varied aspects and contexts of habitation, it also provides compelling examples of the potential for interdisciplinary conversations around significant shared themes.
