Issue 15: Intimacy

In recent years, scholars from a broad range of disciplines have engaged th=
e issue of intimacy. From these various efforts, at least one fact is cle=
ar: There is not one intimacy, but many. How do we describe these intimac=
ies, and what complicates our descriptions? Intimacy is not simply synony=
mous with love, but it is different from friendship, and often quite diff=
erent from sex. Or is it? Moreover, once we have discovered what intimacy=
 is, where do we find it: in communities and nations, between or among fr=
iends, between or among lovers? How is intimacy negotiated and produced, =
maintained, or, often, lost?

The editorial collective of disClosure seeks submissions that explore issue=
s of intimacy as it is found in a variety of areas. Possible topics for c=
onsideration might include intimacy as it intersects with the following:
