Abstract or Description

Home is a multidimensional concept - simultaneously a place, a feeling and an experience - in which complex interactions between space, time and relationships take place. Home-making, understood as practices, processes and routines of making oneself at home in a specific environment, is a universal human capacity, which is at the same time an individual practice. Against the backdrop of current higher education internationalisation discourse, there is a need to understand how universities can become more welcoming places for all students.

Problematising the divide between ‘international’ and ‘home’ students that puts into question who the campus belongs to, this series show-cases high-quality papers that provide a perspective on the internationalisation of higher education based on the view of university campuses as intercultural spaces that all students need to learn to navigate and inhabit. By focusing on students’ home-making as day-to-day practices on spatial, material and social levels, the articles in this series provide fresh insights into students’ experiences of university and the ways in which they manage, or do not manage, to make a home for themselves on the internationalised campus.
