sorry, I could not respond right away - teaching time. I'm not sure whether there is a special branch of philosophy that deals with the exilic condition per se. Various people who experienced this condition - poets, artists, some…"

I just joined this group and found out that we live in the same city. Is it possible we work in the same university? I work for the University of Ottawa, Department of Theatre. How about you? Yana Meerzon"
That sounds fascinating. I'm not all that familiar with exilic philosophy, except Heidegger's various considerations of 'homecoming through otherness". One of my research areas is the phenomenology of international development, central to which, as I see it, is the concept of the 'other', and also an aspect of socio-economic 'exile' in its origin in colonialism. (And, perhaps, and maybe more significantly, an aspect of environmental 'exile', although I haven't thought this through fully, yet.)
But I'm probably using 'exile' in a rather different sense.
Thanks for your message. I actually work as a consultant, so am not affiliated with any university. However, I have an ongoing connection with Carleton University, both as an alumnus and also because my wife is doing her Ph.D. there right now.
What brought you to this group? I found out about it through one of the philosophy listservs I subscribe to.
