Persons, Intimacy and Love

What does it mean to be intimate?  What does it mean to love?  Such broad questions, yet such diverse and personal answers.  This research stream endeavours to explore intimacy and love within the context of persons and interpersonal relationships and across a range of critical, contextual, and cultural perspectives. Seeking to encourage innovative dialogues, we warmly welcome papers which struggle to understand what it is to be a person and how intimacy and love impacts our familial, individual, personal, romantic, and social relationships.

This research stream has a global focus; it aims to facilitate dialogue and spark innovative collaborations and discussions at the international level. We welcome thoughts, ideas and contributions from all disciplines, professions and vocations, going beyond the academic world and bringing together researchers, community activists and professionals engaged in work on Intimacy and Love.
