Abstract: Home is a word central to contemporary society, commonly denoting family, privacy, shelter, and neighborhood. Despite its prevalence, definitions of home are varied and complex, causing its conceptual boundaries to be contested. In this paper, I review the multiple meanings of home found throughout social science literature by organizing them into four categories: 1) home as space and place 2) home as physical structure 3) home as self and social life and 4) home as community and neighborhood. Although these four categories dominate theoretical discussions of home, I argue that such conceptions rely on an undersocialized framework making them insufficient for sociological research and practice. Adopting a sociological perspective, I reexamine home through home tenure (owning versus renting), which I assert will allow us to better establish its theoretical boundaries. To do so, I assess significant historical trends and policy changes in homeownership since the 1920s, and explore how owning and renting can act as proxies for intersecting social categories like race, class, age, and gender. Until we understand how the meaning of home varies based on particular social characteristics the theoretical boundaries will remain insufficient for empirical examination.

Publication Type: Panel Paper
Abstract: As a prelude to the more contemporary papers on this panel, my paper will focus on Sergey Dovlatov and the process of emigration during the late Soviet period. Dovlatov lived in Leningrad, in Tallinn, in Europe (shortly, during his emigration), and, finally, in New York. Using several of Dovlatov’s works, this paper aims to examine the different stages of home and of exile, focusing on the goals, tradeoffs, and psychological states associated with each step in that process. If the goal of the exile/émigré is often freedom, is that imagined freedom attained once the author emigrates? If so, then to what extent? What is lost along the way? Is trading home for the nostalgia of Home a worthwhile trade? While there are many Soviet émigré authors, Dovlatov will serve as a representative of a group who struggled with living in the absence of an ideological battle and, hence, in a place which accentuated the superfluity of the writer.

Abstract: The study examines shifts in the concept of “home” by analyzing the discourse in ads for third-age housing. These ads offer an opportunity to examine the ways in which alternative perceptions of the “sense of place” are presented. The ads were mapped and categorized according to their position on an axis representing changes in the attitude of the elderly population in Israel to the concept of home, with the two poles defined as “building a home” and “dismantling a home.” Analysis focused on a specific aspect: moving away from home. This discourse contains two interconnected levels, the private home and the national home, which interact on four dimensions: (1) Physical – reference to the dwelling itself; (2) Social – reference to the role of family, friends, and social activities offered; (3) Cultural – reference to the leisure activities offered; (4) Economic – reference to the residence as a property.

Abstract: Thomas Dumm, Amherst College

Herman Wallace was imprisoned in solitary confinement for forty years at the Louisiana State Penitentiary in Angola, for a crime he claimed he didn’t commit, the killing of a prison guard while he had been in prison for robbery. He and several other prisoners, all of whom had joined the Black Panther Party after entering prison, were convicted of this murder and sentenced to life without parole, and were singled out for harsh treatment. After over twenty-five years in solitary, Wallace began a collaboration with a conceptual artist named Jackie Summel, who asked Wallace to describe his dream home.

In my paper, I will explore the meaning of home for Herman Wallace, comparing his sense of home with that of Emily Dickinson, in order to explore the relationship of psychological isolation, creativity, and the constitution of home in extreme circumstance.
