Meeting Description:

This symposium is organized by and is part of the activities of the
Research Project on Love, Lust and Longing: Rethinking Intimacy. Among
other projects, it is hosted and developed within the Research Program on
Recasting Bonds.

While discussion of sex become ever more common, opportunities to explore
the nature of love are still rare. When the topic is raised, most often the
focus is on dramatic experiences or hard cases. The “epic” and the
“mundane” are probably more intertwined in our experiences of love than
cultural speech and literature admit. Yet, an imbalance continues to exist:
we reflect little on the smallness of events that sustain love bonds. What
goes unexamined as such are the ways in which love is spoken of and enacted
in everyday life.

This trans-disciplinary research project is interested in exploring the
lived experience of love considering the ways in which it is described and
how it is practiced, identifying how love differs from and overlaps with
concern, care, friendship and lust and raising questions about the
ontology, expression and politics of love.
