What we put into our concept of home through acts of memory and imagination is an enormous part of what home means to us. ‘Remembering, imagining, and other mindwork’ looks at reviving the past through remembering the home; nostalgia; and what returning home means to us. It also considers homes as symbolic expressions. Homes communicate from within, by virtue of their patterns of placement, construction, and use; and they are interpreted from without, according to certain presuppositions and perspectives. Homes model, mirror, elaborate, symbolize, appropriate, and incorporate meanings from the world at large. In these ways, home is connected with larger spheres of existence and narrative, establishing cultural identity.
