Within kinship studies, the term “relatedness” signifies a commitment to the anthropological exploration of emic experiences of relationships (what it is like “being related”). These include but are not restricted to those relationships that fall outside of classical kinship terminologies. Relatedness commonly refers to both a way of conceptualizing ties and a methodological attentiveness to the processes by which people come to be related to one another both through day‐to‐day practices and (often) over longer periods of time.
