Home

This module explores the concept of home as it refers to a place, an ideal, and a physical structure. Participants discuss their memories of, and relationships with, their original home countries, and offer comparisons between the types, sizes and building materials of the dwellings they have inhabited in Canada and their country of origin. These perspectives will help reveal assumptions we carry about the places we call home and how the concept of home varies across different cultures.
