At Home in the Space Between
June 19-21, 2015
University of Notre Dame, South Bend, Indiana
The 2015 conference of The Space Between society, “At Home in the Space Between,” focuses on the concept of home during the period 1914-1945. “Home” as a space invites discussions of interiority, belonging, and family. It also conjures alternate conceptions of haunting, anxiety, and alienation. From notions of the Great War’s “home front” to the interwar period’s “back to home and duty,” politicized notions of home are especially rich during this period. The innovative design and lifestyle experimentation of this period also invite studies of a domestic modernity. The conference “At Home in the Space Between” requests papers from all disciplines that consider “home” in the broadest sense as both space and concept.
Possible topics include:
- Dwelling (as a modern practice as well as a domestic space)
- Interiors and Interiority
- Modern Architecture and Interior Design
- Home Front
- Home Life
- Feeling at Home; Belonging
- Anxiety and the Home; Claustrophobia
- Domestic Modernity
- Labor and the Home; Domestic Service
- Technology and the Home
Submissions should include an abstract of no more than 300 words and a short biographical statement.
New Submission Deadline: January 31, 2015
