June Lunchtime Seminar – Non/Monogamy: Rewriting the Rules

10 Jun 2015 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM


Sulgrave, Room SO14

the University of Northampton, Park Campus


During this presentation Dr Meg John Barker, Senior Lecturer in Psychology at the Open University  will provide an overview of common forms of non/monogamous relationships. They will make the point that, as with sexual and gender identities, recent years have seen a proliferation in terminology which has challenged previous binary understandings of monogamy vs. non-monogamy. For this reason it is more   helpful to consider key ways in which people navigate their relationships, rather than focusing on whether they – or their relationships – are monogamous or non-monogamous. During this presentation Dr Meg John Barker will touch upon a number of different ways of exploring this, as well as considering some alternative  understandings of ‘open relationships’.

A sandwich lunch will be provided.
