Homes and Paths: Notes on Finding Place in Consumer Anthropology

Kevin Browne

Abstract


Homes are often the site of research in business anthropology. The relatively brief time frames of much consumer research can lead to a perception of stability of space-time rather than one of indeterminacy and flux. In this article I explore examples of such flows in the home and how they are actively produced. Following Latour, Ingold, and other theorists, I examine the co-creation of “home” by human and non-human actors in order to destabilize the concept and to open our research to richer possibilities and greater habitability.
