Phd research

  • Working Title: 'Love In The Time Of Precarity: Reproduction and Intimacy in Young People's Lives in London'

Anxiety about the future is now widely understood as a feature of young adulthood that is amplified by socio-economic insecurity. This insecurity, or 'precarity', permeates all kinds of relationships. My study explores the ways that precarity is lived on an everyday basis among young people in London, in their familial, sexual, and platonic relationships. The project hones in on how co-existing precarities affect people's sense of their own and others' futures.
