Homelessness is routinely captured in different kinds of texts: newspapers, TV, novels, expert research, government policy documents, and the law. This multidisciplinary conference will examine the ‘textuality’ of homelessness across a range of areas, bringing together activists, journalists, artists, academics, and people who have personal experience of homelessness. Representing Homelessness is aimed at anyone who is interested in the topic.
This event forms part of the 2019 programme of British Academy Conferences. (link here: https://www.thebritishacademy.ac.uk/british-academy-conferences )
