Caring in uncaring times
The Call for Papers for our next Spring Conference 2020: ”Caring in Uncaring Times” in London, UK, is now out. Abstract submission deadline 16th December 2019. The conference is organised by ATGENDER together with Middlesex University and will take place from the 13th to 15th May 2020.
The conference will explore the possibilities for and necessity of embedding care in policy and activism. Adopting a broad approach to the concepts of care, policy and activism, we invite proposals from researchers, activists, practitioners, carers, archivists, artists and others from a range of backgrounds and disciplines to explore care and caring in all its diversity and invites participants to reflect on the devastating consequences of an uncaring state (across a range of time and places), and the vital work of activism and policy that centres care.
