About this Unit
This unit aims to develop an understanding of how meanings for "home", "homelessness", "homeliness", "homeland" and "exile" are produced by modalities of cultural meaning, such as institutions and their discourses, the media, non-fictional and literary texts. The history of the idea of home will be traced and some theorists who have considered home as imaginary, personal, social, national and global spaces will be studied.
