Proximities: Thinking about Relationality
14th & 15th September 2011
University of Manchester
Proximities will provide an exciting forum for the discussion how social research can incorporate more complex and multi-layered accounts of personal lives into academic writings and analyses. We are using the concept of Proximities as openly as possible to foreground a range of possible relationships and to avoid hierarchies of closeness, kin, or household, and in order to include those forms which might conventionally be regarded as unimportant or marginal.
