Homecoming Tendencies: The Art of Preserving One's Existence in Places of Origin
Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceeding › Chapter (peer-reviewed) › peer-review
Originality/value – The notion of homecoming tendencies contrasts with that of home maintenance, by demonstrating how preserving one's home in departure lands is also a matter of caring, commitment, and contributing back home. Such gestures are inextricably linked with consumption-related activities such as housing decisions, the adoption and export of cultural ideas, traveling, working, celebrating, all in departure contexts. These activities often involve current inhabitants of those territories, such as local designers, constructors, tourism services providers, colleagues, students, and family members.
