Dear colleagues,

A reminder about this event tomorrow:

*Failed Intimacies*

29^th April 2021, 10am-12pm GMT – online.

Part of the AHRC Postdigital Intimacies series.

Digital culture has regularly been understood as facilitating new 
intimate connections. But there is a growing recognition that we should 
pay attention to moments where intimacy is repudiated, ruptures, breaks 
down, or appears to fail, or when intimacy produces nuanced feelings of 
hostility, anger or boredom.

In this first symposium in the series, we draw attention to such 
failure. Our speakers highlight the way such failure is located in power 
structures, structured by gender, race and sexual identity. Their talks 
will explore new forms of extremism forged through the connective spread 
and contagion of online networks, as well as injury and repair.
