Recent conceptual and in-depth research discussions have seen a shift away from use of the term ‘family’, towards ideas focusing on personal life, intimacy and kinship. In these Notes we argue for retention of the concept, we consider the implications of this conceptual withdrawal in terms of family researchers’ ability to engage with how families are invoked in ever-intensifying ways in the public political, and the importance of being able to address how this interacts with and shapes everyday family lives and experiences.
