This article offers an overview of key analytic themes which emerged from a small-scale biographic project on homelessness and violence completed in inner-city Sydney during 2009–2010. The project and some of its central findings are introduced with the aim of providing an accessible, encapsulating summary and also encouraging readership of the full project monograph published through the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) epress.
Such a summary significantly departs from the project’s core aim of giving fuller expression to homeless people’s lifetime experiences of violence through extensive reproduction of, and engagement with, interview narrative. Nonetheless, the need to more broadly advocate awareness in Australia of the entanglement of violence with homelessness remains the purpose of this contribution.
