In this workshop—the first of a four-part series organized by the Thursday Night Tea Research Group on the topic of intimacy—we will be talking about what hides behind the dating apps: how do they determine who we date? Is it all a game of profit? Are they bringing us closer together or driving us further apart? All are welcome to join!
