Dr Thomas Dixon presents BBC Radio 4 series on friendship

Dr Thomas Dixon will present a new series 'Five Hundred Years of Friendship' on BBC Radio 4.  The series launches on Monday 24th March with Thomas comparing social networks in the 16th century with those of today.  This is the beginning of an absorbing story in which both the similarities and the differences between friendship past and present emerge.

The series will be supported by blog posts on the History of Emotions Blog at Queen Mary, University of London, where Thomas is the Director of the Centre for the History of the Emotions.
