DIJ researcher Nora Kottmann will present her paper “Space, place and the pandemic: First insights into changing spatial configurations of singles’ intimate practices” at this week’s Japanese Studies Association of Australia (JSAA) 2021 Conference. It is part of the panel “Singles and Intimate Practices in COVID times: Perspectives from an Original Survey” which also includes presentations by her cooperation partners Laura Dales and Akiko Yoshida. The panel presents findings from the analyses of the survey data, with an aim to better understand the lives and non-familial relationship worlds of unmarried adults, and the experiences and practices from COVID-19 related changes to lifestyle and social practices. This research is part of Nora’s project COVID-19 and its effects on singles in Japan: Personal relationships and practices of intimacy in the time of ‘social distancing’ and ‘self-discipline’. The panel session takes place on Thursday, September 30th, from 11.30 am JST. Conference programme here
