Abstract

In dit artikel kijken we naar de rol van smartphones en sociale media in het proces van je ergens thuis gaan voelen tijdens de overgangsfase van vluchteling naar buurtgenoot in Utrecht. Gebaseerd op participerende observaties tijdens het huisvestigingsproces van statushouders in Utrecht, semi-gestructureerde interviews met statushouders uit Eritrea, Iran, Irak en Syrië en foto’s door statushouders zelf genomen is er inzicht verworven in een veelvoud aan vormen van place-making en gebruik van smartphones en sociale media. Er is zowel een zon- als een schaduwzijde bij dit gebruik in kaart gebracht. We constateerden dat er een spanningsveld bestaat tussen enerzijds het uiting willen geven aan verbondenheid met de stad en anderzijds zorgen over impact op ingebeelde kijkers, die door middel van smartphone en sociale mediagebruik in toenemende mate deelgenoot kunnen worden gemaakt van het proces van je thuis voelen in Utrecht.
