Event description


UNSW Sydney invites you to join the newly appointed Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, Professor Claire Annesley, as she hosts our newest digital conversation series - #UNSWFromHome.

Emotional proximity in times of social distancing

The social distancing measures introduced to combat COVID-19 have affected relationships within Australian families and communities enormously, yet there are many insights that we can learn from the lived experience of isolation and infectious disease.

Join Associate Professor Christy Newman as she explores some of the many ways in which social distancing has impacted on different household and relationship structures, reflecting on the strengths and resources we draw on to remain connected through times of crisis, and providing practical tips for maintaining our own relationships during this time.
