Real/izing The Relational
Journal Of Social And Personal Relationships
From a social constructionist standpoint, there is no single or privileged language by which we must account for social and personal relationships. In this light, we may inquire into the limits and potentials of various modes of scholarly expression: to whom do they communicate and with what societal implications? We press such inquiry forward by exploring the potentials of relational art for conveying the intelligibility of a relational conception of self. By pairing text and graphics, we illustrate the possibilities for `making real' a conception of the self as relationally constituted.
