dc.description.abstractHome and domestic comfort are typically associated with dwellings. This chapter expands definitions and ideas about domesticity, homeliness, and home by examining the experiences of mobile groups of working men: Finnish sailors and logging workers. Based on written oral histories, this research demonstrates the domestic strategies they employed—flexible, temporal, portable and communal—to uphold certain domestic routines, enjoy comforts, maintain a link to home, as well as creating a sense of homeliness in hostile environments.en
