Family and intimate relationships: Emotions in focus

During recent decades, social scientist have argued that economic factors and societal institutions (such as marriage) have lost their significance in maintaining relationships. Consequently, intimate relationships, such as family relations and friendships, are increasingly based on individual choices and preferences. Some researchers have also stated that emotions have become one of the key factor in building, sustaining and breaking various kind of relationships. 

These issues are addressed in the upcoming book Tunteet perhe- ja läheissuhteissa (in Finnish), based on latest Finnish social science research on emotions, family life and intimate relationships. The book is suitable for educational purposes and offers fresh perspectives on the meaning of emotions in today’s relationships. Over 20 researchers from different Finnish universities participate in the writing process. The authors are key persons in this research field and most of them have worked on issues related to family and intimate relationships in their dissertations. The book is illustrated by visual artist Taija Goldblatt. The Finnish Cultural Foundation has granted 5000€ for the book that will be published in spring 2018.

The book is edited by Petteri Eerola (PhD, University of Tampere) and Henna Pirskanen (PhD, University of Jyväskylä).
