1996; Warnes, 1999). However, a pertinent question regards what unifies new positionings in ageing and place research. The answer must be creativity of method and an expansion of theory. Place encourages, is formed by and incorporates talk. As Gubrium and Holstein (1999: 521) argue, the very term ‘nursing home’, for instance, ‘guides and ramifies body talk relevant to disease, caregiving and dying’. Talk about place can thus constitute data, as the narratives collected shade in the ‘middle ground’ between people and place (Cloutier-Fisher and Joseph, 2000).

KONTOS domestic life, these rituals ‘arouse deep involuntary memories, those surges of remembrance that are not merely accurate and extensive but bring with them the essences and textures of their original context, transcending time and change’ (1978: 225). Thus we see in Myerhoff’s analysis of these ‘definitional ceremonies’ (1992) the significance of place, namely the home, which is redolent of early, fundamental associations. It is Myerhoff’s assertion that rituals associated with the earliest social experiences have potent emotion and cultural rootedness and, as such, have the capacity to carry one back to earliest times with nostalgia and great yearning (1978).

Mowl et al. (2000) found that for some elderly respondents, exclusively spending time in the home space was identified as health-damaging, accelerating decline and ultimately leading to death. For others, being able to still reside in their own home was seen as a symbol of resistance to the ageing process itself. Recently, a key transition in research is from thinking of place as location or container for older people, and moving through a more theorised engagement with the politics of location.
