This year’s topic of conference will be the idea of home. During our two-day meeting, we will try to approach the idea of home from all the different points of view and we will try to find an answer to some of the most peculiar questions: What was the idea of home for individuals, groups, movements and even states? How did they use it to construct their identity or as a tool of political struggle or propaganda? What kinds of different ideas of home might there be? How did people fight for their home? How did they deal with loosing it? What was it like to look for new home or to try to return to the old one? What was the role of memories of a home lost in this process?
