Abstract Now that the centennial celebrations are over home economics - more than any time in its rocky history - is at a cross roads. The current times of the knowledge economy with unprecedented societal change, innovation and a socially aware community demanding sustainability, ethical and socially just policy and practice, is both opportunistic and threatening to the profession. We cannot afford to bask in the glory of having survived 100 years as a profession. This presentation will offer ideas for thinking about possible futures for home economics.
