The first Canadian collection of its kind, Sociology of Home draws on sociological approaches to family, urban and rural communities, and migration and immigration to discuss the idea of “home”—an intensely personal concept that is, in its varying iterations, bound to larger economic and political systems.

Moving from private homemaking to community building and political ecology, authors investigate home as a constructed space within the context of a diverse set of cultural, political, built, and natural landscapes that ground Canadian experiences. This comprehensive introductory reader explores a diversity of homes and homemaking and is an important contribution to the sociological studies of home, family, environment, gender, and social inequality.

About the Editors:

Joseph Moore is a Professor of Anthropology and Sociology at Douglas College. He has research interests in environmental sociology, urban sociology, and social movements.

Laura Suski is a Professor of Sociology and Liberal Studies at Vancouver Island University. Her current research focuses on the intersection of consumption, emotion, and ethics.
