Expulsion and Extraction
The chapter discusses two fundamental conceptual devices put forward in the book: the notions of expulsion and extraction. These are considered the essential functions of home, which work as a form of refrain, or ritornello, across home(lessness) to (re)produce its affective and political economy. Exemplifications around quintessential homely diagrams working through expulsion and extraction are discussed in anthropocentrism, racialization , heteronormalization, and capitalization processes.
