At the 2018 edition of the British Sociological Association conference, a session on Researching home, sociologically was convened by Paolo Boccagni. This video includes, first, a short presentation of the session, regarding the sociological meanings and relevance of “home” as a matter of dwellings, practices and discursive categories. A research agenda for the sociology of home is then briefly outlined. In the first presentation, Caroline Blunt (University of Central Lancashire) revisits a multi-sited ethnography of the making of home carried out in England and the Republic of Ireland. The research sought to exercise the sociological imagination to explore what the making of home meant, involved, evoked amongst diverse households juxtaposed in a field conceived of as temporal and spatial. Blunt locates her methodology vis-a- vis models of ethnography and case study research and outlines the particular analytic mode practised during her fieldwork which might be likened to the movement of a shuttle on a loom. She then discusses the ways in which her own experience(s) and conceptions of home figure epistemologically and heuristically. Last, she reframes her research as visiting, as a question of guest/hosts and types/ degrees of hospitality. In the following presentation Anna Pechurina (Leeds Beckett University) explores several key interlinked approaches to accessing diasporic identities and homes: by using the multidimensional / sensorial understanding of the concept of home, through the materiality and symbolism of diasporic objects, and by exploring the diasporic quality of migrant cultural practices. Pechurina understands home as a ‘multidimensional’ and ‘practiced’ concept that enables to learn not only about migrants’ material cultures but also about their ways and processes of maintaining cultural identity and a sense of belonging. Three areas of enquiry are identified: the ‘physical’ home, which refers to tangible components including the building and its objects; the ‘symbolic’ or imagined home, which refers to the idea of home or of specific symbolisms around it; and the ‘practiced’ home, which refers to the practices of homemaking and relationships that maintain a sense of home within a physical space. Last, Paolo Boccagni discusses the promises and pitfalls of ‘home tours’, i.e. in-depth ethnographies and go-alongs in dwellings, as a way of studying the daily life experience of immigrant newcomers compared with long-settled natives (and, transnationally, with their significant others left behind). Methodologically, this requires sensibility in negotiating access to the domestic realm, in grasping its material bases and the ways of using domestic spaces, in order to appreciate natives’ and aliens’ attempts at making themselves at home. Substantively, a comparative and cross-cultural ethnography of the spatial organization of home enables a unique understanding of migrants’ attitudes and expectations towards receiving and sending communities, and of the material resources available to them. What is displayed in home spaces, where, and why; how people orient functionally and symbolically their interior spaces; how such spaces are differentially occupied and experienced along gender and generational lines; what kind of memories are displayed, and what specific rituals are performed – on these micro-underpinnings of post-migration everyday life, little insight can be gained unless through ethnography in a variety of settings and scales.
