The Thesis

        • How it relates to your text
        • Create mind maps with links to your ideas
        • A couple of sentences summarising your position
        • Base it on a particular aspect of your Area of Study
  • Home is often referred to as ‘where the heart is’. With its assurance of security, shared values and unconditional acceptance, ‘home’ transcends the physical boundaries of place to represent a metaphysical and emotional sense of identity.
  • An individual’s quest for acceptance is inextricably linked to the development of self as what allows us to truly belong is the ability to be free to be ourselves. This can mean that the individual risks going against the grain “alienating” themselves in order to belong.
  • Connection to place evokes an emotional attachment through shared experience, cultural significance and a sense of heritage. Our search for who we are is fuelled by a need to find a place in the world where we belong.
