This text contributes to existing research on material culture, cultural identity and migration by providing a fresh perspective on post-socialist diasporic identity amongst Russian-speaking migrants to the United Kingdom. It evaluates the ethnographic research methods used to study material cultures, including qualitative interviews at home, sensory methods and visual research, and is structured around a series of case studies on attitudes to homemaking, food and cooking, and clothing. In sum, it analyses the ways in which Russian-speaking migrants create a sense of home and of belonging to an imagined community.
