Personal profile


Harry Blatterer's research centres on the changing meanings of friendship as an intimate relationship that is 'generative' - potentially life changing, invaluable for integration into new environments and supportive of a sense of self as well as personal change. Having outlined his sociological perspective on friendship in Everyday Friendships (Palgrave Macmillan 2015), and having translated Francesco Alberoni's seminal Friendship (Brill 2016), Harry is now embarking on expanding that research to write on intellectual, political and artistic friendships in order to understand and explain the generative potentials of this vital human relationship.

Harry is interested in supervising HDR candidates who want to pursue research in the areas of personal relationships and, more broadly, questions of privacy.
