This conference will provoke new questions and discussions about what it meant to be "at home in empire". Touching on themes of intimacy and mobility, the papers invite us to consider the anxieties that accompanied colonial experiences and representations. Stretching across several centuries, continents, and empires, the conference will offer an interdisciplinary platform to problematize the binaries of public and private, coloniser and colonised, centring the complex meanings and representations of home and the messiness of everyday life in the colonial and post-colonial context.
