As part of our LIVING CURRICULUM SERIES, we launch an interview with GLOBAL PIONEER addressing IN SEARCH OF HOME: STORY-ING NEW PARADIGMS, DR. EDA ELIF TIBET.
Dr. Eda Elif Tibet is a co-founding family member of Home for Humanity Association. She is a postdoctoral researcher at the Critical Sustainability Unit at the Institute of Geography, University of Bern and a visual anthropologist with the Global Diversity Foundation for local community empowerment. She is the founder of KARMAMOTION, a film collective of visual anthropologists and various artists in which to date they have produced 7 award winning films.
In this interview, Dr. Eda Elif Tibet reflects on Home and Home for Humanity: “Home is not a stable static entity, as homing in is a constant act of #homemaking. Home has been a particular area of inquiry in #identitymakingin the anthropological stance. Personally, I see home as #safety. Home is a #shelter. It is a place of inner comfort; a tranquil place of knowing that you are fine. And when safety is endangered your world turns upside down”. Elif asks herself: "how to reconcile among ourselves and restore our homes into spaces for more inclusive and just societies?".
