RHOME – Representations of Home

RHOME – Representations of Home

Bearing in mind the changing political architectures of homeland, from Canada’s 1988 Multiculturalism Act, to Post-apartheid South Africa’s constitution, post-1998 Peace Agreement Ireland, post-independence India, and the official apology to Australia’s Indigenous peoples in 2008, RHOME examines representations of home/lessness and negotiations of belonging in societies marked by a history of colonisation and migration and engaged in (re)configuring multiple and sometimes conflicting heritages. Launched in 2014, it pursues four main strands of inquiry: home and language; home and place; home and conflict; and home and the body.
