8. Name, sex, and religion Abstract ‘Name, sex, and religion’ argues that name, religion, and gender are three of the most important features of individual and group distinctiveness — and when they are linked with language, even more potent identity marking emerges. If, for instance, religion is a central pillar in the culture of a group whose language is at risk, it makes sense to exploit its strength and to suggest that faith is uniquely expressible through the threatened tongue. Names and naming can carry important emotional baggage and may prove very contentious. Religious, sexual, and onomastic matters occupy important,

2. Fear of the dark?: blacks, Jews, and barbarians Abstract The concept of race long preceded the invention of the term. The idea that human biological characteristics such as skin colour, facial features, hair, and skull size were associated with ingrained cultural and behavioural traits was well established. It was even thought that the level of ability to use reason, capacity for ‘civilization’, and the arts could all be measured by appearance. ‘Fear of the dark?: blacks, Jews, and barbarians’ charts the history of these racial ideas through various ages and geographical areas including the ancient Egyptians, the Greeks, the

6. New racisms? Abstract Few people now admit to racist feelings. But even those that might have problems agreeing on how many races there are and how they are to be differentiated from each other. If this difficulty is real, why do so many in the social sciences, media, and political realms claim that racism is still prevalent in the contemporary world? ‘New racisms?’ looks at this interesting paradox where racial discrimination is regarded as widespread but race has no scientific basis. There has been considerable debate since the 1980s about the changing relationship between earlier, overt racism and the

3. Dwelling and dwellings Abstract Dwelling is both an activity and a location in which that activity takes place. ‘Dwelling and dwellings’ considers some of the many types of abodes in which dwelling has occurred or does so today, and reflects further on the deep significance that may be attached to dwelling. It looks at the shape and function of areas of the home and how previous dwellers of a home may affect the dwelling for future inhabitants. It also discusses the transient accommodation of nomadic peoples. It concludes that homes provide ways of connecting with one another, with our

5. People, objects, and identity Abstract ‘People, objects, and identity’ considers how the home is a major focus in the construction of self-identity and how people carve out home space even within institutions. It suggests that a home is always a house plus many other ingredients, but a house is a home minus many elements. These elements include the people who matter to us and the objects we choose to keep in our homes. The links between home, objects, and personal identity are dramatically illustrated by two stories focusing on the Holocaust. They demonstrate that destroying homes and their occupants’
