“Home” as a place can take various meanings in different historical and geographical contexts. Assigned historically to women, the home space is usually made sense (of) by oppressive aspects such as violence or exploitation. While these approaches are indispensable to interpret the home space, home in certain contexts can become a place of solidarity, a place of healing, a place of resistance, empowerment, particularly for women. This course will comprise of different readings, approaches on the home space, homemaking practices and homelessness so that the participants can have distinct alternatives to think through the home space and their own questions relationally. Homemaking is a sub-category of place-making that is characterized by two aspects primarily: belonging and habituation. Yet these two practices cannot be separated from each other in a clear-cut way via solely two concepts. Some place-making practices may end up with home-making practices and vice versa. For this reason, even though the course is going to focus on the home space, home will be conceptualized in relation to categories such as homeland, nation, diaspora, exile, displacement.
The research course will focus on conducting research in teams. It will start with coming up with a research question and preparing a literature review. One of the main foci will be on conducting interviews (structured, semi-structured, narrative, etc.) and will finish with data analysis.
