Friendship Studies

Friendship Studies is a relatively new interdisciplinary field dedicated to promoting research, education and practices focused on the nature and role of friendship in personal, social, cultural, political, cosmic and religious life. As such, this guide will be updated as new resources are submitted.

This interdisciplinary collection provides introductory resources for studies in this area, as well as access to more specialized research and collaboration among international scholars and professionals. We welcome you to explore the possibilities for engaging friendship: as a source of inquiry for undergraduate or graduate studies, and as a lens for critical scholarship across methodologies that include but are not limited to pedagogical, ethical, aesthetic, and spiritual approaches, and within and across the natural and social sciences, humanities, fine and performing arts, and applied and professional fields.
