“Homes, Objects and Things”

Posted on

Devora Neumark will be traveling to Hobart in March to present her paper entitled “Drawn to Beauty” during a 2-day Housing Theory Symposium sponsored by the Housing and Community Research Centre of the University of Tasmania.

Drawing out the connections between home and beauty, this paper presents some key findings from Neumark’s PhD research/creation and addresses the following questions: What role does beauty play in the complex process of making home anew in the aftermath of displacement? How do the stories we tell about home, influence our experiences of home?

In his letter of invitation, Keith Jacobs, Associate Dean of Research and Director of the Housing and Community Research Centre wrote: “There is a strong interest from researchers in the field of housing studies to engage with interdisciplinary scholars and artists.”

Devora Neumark is PhD student at matralab.
