If singlehood appears implicitly in many research related to marriage or family and conjugal life, it has rarely been considered as a main topic. This conference’s goal is to put singlehood in the spotlight. To do so we must question the very definition of this word and its multiple interpretations and meanings according to academic fields, historical periods, or cultural areas.
Three lines of questioning
Defining and classifying singlehood
To be single within social and family structures
Intimacy, sexuality, and emotional life of singlemen and singlewomen
