Abstract or Description

This paper builds on Bhabha’s (1992, 1994) conceptualization of third space and the ‘unhomely’ by turning to the power of the tangible, material and ordinary aspects of the intercultural encounter. In order to do this it focuses on the ‘crisis points’ that languagers encounter in their biographies and puts forward a frame of analysis based on the concepts of ‘Chronotope’ and ‘Mudes’ that places languagers’ spatio-temporal coordinates in synchronicity with their life itineraries.
