Chapter 53: Conclusion: on the futures of home and migration
Restricted access

This final chapter approaches the futures of home and migration as a field of research and of human experience, by revisiting the handbook and my own approach to home as a matter of unequally distributed ways of homemaking and homing. After a brief mention of the impact of covid on lived domesticities and on home studies, I first address the meanings and implications of the collective categories on which theorisation and research rely. This paves the way for a five-point agenda on the prospects ahead, in relation to digital homemaking, material cultures of home "from the margins", cross-scale research on the lived experience of displacement, comparative research on home and homemaking, and the potential contribution of superdiversity and intersectionality to the study of home and migration. Last, the future of this experiential field is critically discussed, through the frictions between fixed views of home, mobile experiences of it, and deeply unequal opportunities and rights to connect the former with the latter over time, in terms of homing.
