Stories of Home: Place, Identity, Exile offers a window into the distinct ways that home is theorized and conceptualized across disciplines. The essays in this volume consider how people speak and story home in their everyday lives, why home is central to our notion of who we are, and how making home a unit of analysis in research makes a strong conceptual contribution to the field of communication. This collection engages home from diverse contexts and disparate philosophical underpinnings; at the same time the essays converse with each other by centering their foci on the relationship between home, place, identity, and exile. Homehow we experience it and what it says about the selves we come to occupyis an exigent question of our contemporary moment. Stories of Home: Place, Identity, Exile delivers timely and critical perspectives on these important questions.
