Duke on Gender - The Concept of Care

Friday, January 24, 2020 - 11:30am

Speaker(s): 
Yolanda Y. Wilson and Jocelyn Olcott

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, for example care for the environment and culture.
