Centre for Studies of Home

The Centre for Studies of Home is a partnership between the Geffrye Museum of the Home and Queen Mary, University of London. 

The centre is an internationally important hub of research, knowledge transfer and dissemination activities on the home. 

Research includes everyday domestic life, material cultures, architecture and design. Projects also look at the significance of home beyond the domestic, investigating ideas about dwelling, belonging, privacy and security.
