Call for Abstracts - Critical Care

Critical Care invites explorations of the paradoxical and ambivalent aspects of care — of the ways that it implies both flourishing and repression, embrace and exclusion, and pricelessness and worthlessness. Further, care in one realm often implies carelessness in another. This special issue will examine these tensions within the field of care studies, considering how the provision of care can discipline normative values about appropriate modes, objects, and practices. Today, inequalities of care are normalized, and many care practices are unsustainable ecologically, socially, culturally, and economically (e.g., Benería 2008, Damamme, et al. 2017, Fraser 2016, R. Parreñas 2002; Razavi 2011). Solutions to the crisis of care have centered principally on state-, market-, and technology-centered approaches, but addressing this crisis demands a more thoroughgoing interrogation of human values, including developing shared understandings of the very concepts of care and its value.

Open Access Bibiliography 2023-2024

Revaluing Care in the Global Economy invites entries for our Open-Access Bibliography that seek ways to open up the question of valuing care. This bibliography has three principal objectives:

  1. To provide a resource for researchers, journalists, and policymakers who may want to
    learn more about the field of care studies and any of its subfields.
  2. To increase visibility of relevant research that may not be readily evident through most
    research databases, which tend to favor widely cited, English-language research.
  3.  To provide a vehicle for mapping the field of care studies and examining the ways
    concepts and keywords do or do not travel and translate among different contexts.
