Living through the COVID-19 pandemic has had transformative impacts in the world of care, some negative and some positive. The Carework Network is organizing a three-day virtual symposium to bring together carework researchers from across disciplines and across the globe.

The centerpiece of the symposium will be a series of three Scholars-in-Dialogue sessions, a novel format that will feature established care scholars discussing selected papers from innovative scholars at all levels. These sessions are designed to move beyond the conversation about immediate emergency responses to the pandemic and engage with longer-term questions about the future of carework scholarship and advocacy. The themes for the sessions are:

  • Revisiting the Meaning(s) of Care
  • The Role of the State
  • Technological Futures of Care
