Contesting Care Conference

Activity: EventsConference


Contesting Care is an online event that responds to the crisis in care following the 2019 Pandemic. It brings together interdisciplinary scholars from Duke University’s Revaluing Care Network (RCN), the University of Exeter’s Wellcome Centre for Cultures and Environments of Health, and other interested academics and artists. It will host a varied and innovative range of interventions, from conventional presentation panels to films, artist talks and workshops, fostering dialogue between creative and critical engagements with care, and seeking to develop concepts and methodologies that can be taken forward to address the global crisis of care. The aim of the event is to identify new research questions and collaborations, while producing an initial range of outputs for those currently thinking about care in their research and practice.
