Imagining the Place of Home

Postgraduate students

Ruth Mackay


An AHRC funded project under the auspices of the Connected Communities Programme 

What role does the imagination have to play in conceiving of relationships between home and communities?

Does home continue to have a vibrant future as a place into which citizens can project themselves and shape imagined lives within just and fair societies? 

'Imagining the Place of Home' is engaged with mapping current and historically significant research on the relationship between home and the imagination in the fields of literary and cultural studies. We aim to deepen understanding of work already undertaken within the arts and humanities and establish the parameters for new research initiatives.
