In conversation with Marie Bergstom

Posted on 12 July 2022

Last week, Swedish sociologist, and researcher Marie Bergström spoke with Managing Associate Nicola Simmons about her recent research on how and why online dating became so popular.  

In this session, she discussed her new book The New Laws of Love: Online Dating and the Privatization of Intimacy, and how the key to understanding the ride of digital dating is in 'the privatisation of intimacy.'

The book also sheds light on the persisting inequalities of intimate life, showing that online dating is neither free nor fair: it has its winners and losers, and it differs significantly according to gender, age, and social class.
