Imagining the place of home


Principal Investigator: Professor Bridget Bennett (University of Leeds)
Duration: 2012

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? This research review is engaged with charting 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.
