Summary

Mapping Intimacies: Relations, Exchanges, Affects explores the shifting terrain of intimate life through diverse contemporary studies, asking what is 'exchanged' in relating, what and who is made 'intimate' and how can intimacy be re-mapped, personally and politically? The book engages with a range of issues such as polyamory, sex work, trans partnerships, domestic violence, older LGB caring practices, class distinctions and inequalities, donor conception, STI transmission, women-only spaces, same-sex recognition and migrant families from across the globe including Cambodia, Italy, Portugal, the UK and the Caribbean. It queries, celebrates and critiques the boundaries of current theorizing and offers insights into the nuances of everyday affect, emotion and exchange.
