This class is designed as an Online-Seminar in cooperation with Off-University and The New University in Exile Consortium.


This course will ponder on belonging and exclusion from a spatial perspective by particularly focussing on the home place in urban settings that can take different forms for different subject positions. It 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. Home can be considered as the space of birth and sometimes as a place of destination. There is small group of people who choose to be homeless but there is a growing number of people composed of lower class and middle class populations who are forced to become homeless due to a variety of reasons. Homelessness can take the shape of diaspora, exile, forced migration, refugee or becoming homeless due to economic conditions. Home, on the other hand, can become a desired space of security and intimacy yet at times it may function as a space of oppression, exploitation and suppression. For this reason, even though the course is going to focus on the home space particularly in urban settings, home will be conceptualized in relation to categories such as homeland, nation, diaspora, exile, displacement along with gender/sexuality, race and class.
