Loneliness has become a popular topic of conversation recently, particularly in the past few months as working from home becomes a new norm for many people and free movement is restricted due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Concerns are increasingly being raised about the implications of the lockdown for mental health. Dr Fay Bound Alberti recently published an article in Time on the history of loneliness, which can be read in full here.
In addition to this, Dr Bound Alberti has been interviewed by a number of news outlets, speaking to Daphnée Leportois about the anxiety of those not wanting to join lockdown parties in Slate and to Matt Simon about the historical relationship between the individual and society in Wired.
