Home: A Place in the World

2nd Social Research Conference October 25-27, 1990

We live in a time when the idea of home has become problematic. We are confronted daily with painful images and stories about the growing numbers of homeless people, about criminal violence toward children, and about the plights of those exiled from their homelands. All of this coexists with the persistent images of home as a place of comfort, safety, and refuge.


This conference was a central part of the Home Project at The New School in 1990, a project designed to explore the ideology of home, its meaning as a central human idea, and the crises engendered by its loss suffered in alienation.


This conference is funded by grants from the Ford FoundationNational Endowment for the Humanities and The Rockefeller Foundation
