Special Topic: Connected Lives
Examines the personal and social significance of the relational dimension of our lives – from casual encounters with acquaintances, to intimate relationships with sexual partners and the usually enduring relationships with kin – in an era that some claim is increasingly individualised. Three key themes will be emphasised - connection versus individualisation, past and present relational embeddedness and the pleasure and pain of connections to others.
