  • > Fixing stone in time: Making and measuring consolidants for heritage futures

    Time & Society, Ahead of Print. <br/>Stone consolidants have been used in conservation practices for decades, with an increasingly interdisciplinary scientific attention to their composition and performance.

The normative significance of coupledom and procreation as markers of adulthood has hardly diminished, although the nuclear family model has opened up in past decades in Euro-American countries. I argue that the close connection between coupledom and adult status sidelines communal ...
