Dwelling-in-Traveling, Traveling-in-Dwelling

(p.192) Conclusion
Extreme Domesticity

Susan Fraiman

Columbia University Press

Cites James Cliffords’s notion of traveling-in-dwelling and dwelling-in-traveling to describe a liminal space where the sheltered and unsheltered meet. Reads Samuel R. Delany’s graphic memoir, Bread & Wine: An Erotic Tale of New York (1999), for its love story between a professor and a homeless man. Concludes with comments on an emblematic image from Catherine Opie’s “Domestic” series: a lesbian couple and their daughter that both invokes and revises traditional notions of home as a place of everyday comfort and routine.

Keywords:   James Clifford, Samuel Delany, graphic memoir, Catherine Opie, lesbian domesticity
