Duke on Gender - The Concept of Care
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).
