Domains of Privacy and Hospitality in Arab Gulf Homes
This paper reports findings of an ethnographic study of homes in the Arab Gulf country of Qatar. Our analysis and contribution focuses on the tension between privacy and hospitality in Qatari homes in the context of identity threats posed by being a minority in their native land and by an influx of Western modernity. By developing an understanding of the privacy/hospitality dialectic in Qatar, we provide insights into how these values are incorporated or resisted in the design and use of family homes in a modern era of increasing globalism.
