Home and Exile Working Group

The Home and Exile Working Group tries to think about migration in a different way, as a loss of homeland but also the making of a new home. It asks, what makes it possible for people to feel at home in exile and, how can academics intervene in the conversation about immigration in ways that produce new discourses that resist racism through insisting on the right of people to feel at home in the world?
