HOMInG INTERVIEW with MARTA BIVAND ERDAL
Research Professor at PRIO – Peace Research Institute Oslo
Conducted by Sara Bonfanti
In Malmo, at the IMISCOE Conference, on Fri. 28th June 2019
“I am a bit critical of the saying that goes “home is where the heart is”, which I find simplistic, at least if it is not pluralized. Home is always also a material space and a set of relations that change over time. From interviews with migrants… we really get the sense that homes can be – and often are – plural. Furthermore, people’s memory and projections of home change across the life course and as one’s socio-economic situation changes”.
