Politics of Care Graduate Student Conference
The Politics of Care Conference will take place over 3 days on May 17-19, 2023 at UC Santa Cruz. Below is an overview of the conference schedule and program, including plenary sessions, special events, and meals.
We invite you to be part of interdisciplinary discussions centered around themes of neoliberalism, radical care, emotional justice, care in times of crisis, trans and queer care, global politics of care, gendered care, and communities of care. We hope the presentations during this conference will shed light on the often unseen, under-valued, and under-theorized labor involved in “care” and its associated social and political dynamics and conditions.
Graduate Student Call For Abstracts is closed. Selected submissions have been notified via email. We solicited innovative and inter/transdisciplinary, intellectual dialogue to happen in the following four tracks:
- Neoliberalism, Capitalism, and Care
- Global Politics, Citizen-making, and Care
- Environmental Crisis and Care
- Care as Radical Healing
Conference Registration is free and open to the public. Meals and promotional items will be provided to all those who register.
