Representing Homelessness

Edited by Owen Clayton

British Academy

Proceedings of the British Academy

  • Focus on ‘representation’ – an overlooked aspect of the homelessness problem – allowing for a discussion of how harmful images and stereotypes about homelessness negatively impact public policy
  • Combines academic research with first-hand accounts of homelessness, which demonstrates the abilities and personal qualities of people affected by homelessness, increases ‘theory of mind’, and provides a platform for the discussion of emotion, each helping to overcome the Othering of people affected by homelessness
  • Multidisciplinary, allowing exploration of what the Arts, Humanities, Sciences and Social Sciences can offer each other in researching and, ultimately, ending homelessness
