Full text not available from this repository.


How have globalisation and technology changed what home means for us? With a record one billion people worldwide now on the move, the poet Ruth Padel suggests that in many ways, home is not a stable concept, instead it is something people are always searching for. Urban housing and poverty specialist Dr Sunil Kumar looks at how a vision of 21st Century cities without slums has created a difficult balance between home and the workplace for people in the developing world. And digital anthropologist Stefana Broadbent explores how technology has transformed our homes, leading us to retreat back into the home for our play.
