Duke on Gender - The Concept of Care

Friday, January 24, 2020 - 11:30am to 1:00pm

This panel debates the concept of care—the vast amount of laboring and affective labor (gendered and racialized)—that exists (often simultaneously) in varying states of commodification and non-commodification and whose consistent performance is indispensable for survival. This care labor includes social and non-social practices (e.g. care for the environment and culture).
