Abstract


Although the house has always been an object of interest and investigation for anthropologists, it is only in the past few decades that it has taken on strategic importance in ethnographic research. Reviewing the origin of these studies, we highlight some of the more recent research aims and how they
can help us to understand the world we live in.
