Mediated Intimacies

Joleen Blom

In this podcast I talk with invited experts about the different shapes and forms in which we engage with affection and intimacy through media platforms and technology, such as social media (like Instagram or Facebook, or Tinder), novels, television series, or video games to voice assistants like Alexa or the Google Assistant. This podcast discusses why, how, and what we do when we use all kinds of media and technology to create intimacy with ourselves and others, whether these others are fictional or not.
