HOMING INTERVIEW # 36: KIM DOVEY

HOMInG interview with Kim Dovey (University of Melbourne)

conducted by Paolo Boccagni

November 2019

“I live in Australia where the original inhabitants have 60,000 years of learning how to respect and love a particularly fragile place – that needs to be respected for more than just the emotional connection. As an ordered relation to a particular environment the concept of home might also be extended to non-human species. […] [H]ome does have deep roots but it also has wings. Becoming at home in a new place is a learning experience and an adaptive process for both newcomers and longer-term inhabitants”.
