This thesis investigates the present reality of an anti-homeless public space and its construction of the street homeless subject, with normative conclusions. The recent history of various tactics of dispersal and their interconnection are revealed. I argue that it is not just archaic laws and legislative heirs to such laws which impede the survival of the street homeless, but the physicality of public space itself. Prior to presenting this case however, I first engage in an examination of political theory methods. I do this to form a storytelling method suited to the task of, but not limited to, exploring an anti-homeless public space.
