Higgins School of Humanities' fall dialogue symposium to focus on 'home'

September 14, 2016

Clark University’s Higgins School of Humanities’ dialogue symposium, “Home (De)Constructed,” will consider the fluid meanings of home. Lectures, community conversations and exhibits will focus on how we define home’s boundaries, and what makes a particular structure, community, city or nation feel like home.

“Together we will explore our assumptions about domestic goods and spaces, ask how the meaning of home is transformed by forced and free migrations, and reckon the economic, political, and environmental risks and rewards of maintaining our individual and collective domesticity,” writes Amy Richter, director of the Higgins School of Humanities.

Symposium events begin at 7 p.m. Thursday with "No Place Like It? A Community Conversation about Home," during which Richter will facilitate a dialogue about the many meanings of home in the Higgins Lounge on the second floor of Dana Commons.
