Description

From Buffy the Vampire Slayer to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Joss Whedon’s work presents various representations of home spaces that give depth to his stories and storytelling. Through the spaceship in Firefly, a farmhouse in Avengers: Age of Ultron or Whedon’s own house in Much Ado About Nothing, his work collectively offers audiences the opportunity to question the ways we relate to and inhabit homes. Focusing on his television series, films and comics, this collection of new essays explores the diversity of home spaces in Whedon’s many ’verses, and the complexity these spaces afford the narratives, characters, objects and relationships within them.
