In this paper, I apply Foucauldian principles, in the same manner as Townley’s (1993) work on Human Resources, to the novel field of Homelessness in the United Kingdom. I consider the housing provider-recipient relationship, together with methods employed to render the subject of homelessness discourse visible. I apply the Foucauldian concept of governmentality to this process of subjectivisation in the homelessness discourse.
