Beschrijving Proceedings of the British Academy: Representing Homelessness

This multidisciplinary volume combines academic research with first-hand accounts of homelessness. It describes how people affected by homelessness are perceived as objects through the process of Othering. It also provides examples of how such Othering can be overcome through collaboration, and by providing a platform for people affected by homelessness.

The volume argues that stereotypical representations of homelessness, while useful for charity fundraising, do more harm than good. It concludes that organisations tasked with dealing with homelessness must include greater representation from people with direct ‘lived experience’ of homelessness.
