Hinweis: Ringvorlesung (be)coming home (March 6th - June 26th)

Univ.-Prof. Dr. Sarah Heinz, a.o.Univ.-Prof. Dr. Monika Seidl and Mag. Barbara Maly-Bowie cordially invite you to the international lecture series (be)coming home.


The interdisciplinary lecture series '(be)coming home'addresses the many configurations and struggles of how 'home' becomes meaningful when it is approached in terms of mobilities. Historical and contemporary forms of migration and communication trouble understandings of 'home' as territorially bounded place. With various case studies, this lecture series approaches 'home' as a contested, permeable and mobile category of space, identity and belonging. In that sense, 'home' is imbued with exclusionary logics and contingent on power relations circulating around the question of who is and who can or must move in- or outside 'home' - be it the feeling, the private sphere, a residence, a family, a community or nation.

This lecture series is in cooperation with the Department of Political Science, the Research Platform Mobile Cultures and Societies, the Angewandte Innovation Laboratory of the University of Applied Arts and the Austrian Academy of Sciences (ÖAW DOC-team).
