10 February 2014 Homeless conference flyer (pdf; 235kb)

We are pleased to inform you of the forthcoming Homeless Conference, which will take place at the University of Kent on the 20th and 21st of June 2014. This multidisciplinary event will question the concept of Homelessness across disciplines, from its impact on urban spaces to its broader implications in connection to questions of identity and exile, in time and space.

This Postgraduate conference, jointly organised by 3 schools of the University of Kent, aims to explore the topic of homelessness across disciplines and fields of study. We therefore welcome 250-words abstracts for 20-minute papers and posters (research, art or photography) from all academic disciplines, including architecture and urban planning, sociology, politics, human geography, the arts, literature, history, philosophy, social psychology and ethnobotany. We particularly welcome contributions from postgraduate students and early-career researchers.
