Thinking Allowed - A sense of home

Updated Wednesday 21st December 2011

In the next episode of Thinking Allowed, Laurie Taylor and a team of two sociologists will be visiting listeners’ homes to discuss their home arrangements

Thinking Allowed will be looking at a ‘home’ shared by a group of professionals/semi-professionals - a ‘family’ in the very extended sense of the word who are making a home together partly out of economic necessity, but also out of lifestyle choice. The programme will ask, what does family-life constitute in new home arrangements? What does it mean to set up home nowadays with economic demands (price of housing, mortgage difficulties)? What kinds of tensions emerge in sharing when one is not in a recognisable ‘relationship’?
