Watch the video introduction to the Journal above!
This Special Issue seeks to explore how interpersonal relationships are mediated in contemporary contexts by highlighting emotive dimensions of mediated communication. By featuring theoretical propositions alongside empirical studies on mediations of everyday life, Together while Apart? highlights how mediated interactions are nowadays entangled with emotional processes of socialization and practices of connectivity, which take place within technical infrastructures that might afford or constrain certain practices.
We are proud to present research from a broad variety of cultural contexts, dealing with a range of different relationship practices: parenting in Britain, backpacking Westerners in South-East-Asia, young coupling in Singapore, Trans-experience in the US, performing para-social intimacy through Vine, and, not to be missed: the globally known <3, which French people apparently dislike.
