A seminar organised by the ReValuing Care Network in collaboration with the Centre for Law and Society in a Global Context (CLSGC), School of Law, Queen Mary University of London.
This seminar will draw on the research of the ReValuing Care Network to consider the possibilities of a new ‘cycles’ approach to care. This approach addresses how subjects move between and among instances of care-receiving and care-giving over time and space as they generate and value connection with one another through embodied experiences and rights claims.
The network was original funded by the AHRC to create space for inter-disciplinary and cross-sector dialogue about ‘care’ as it is understood conceptually, socially and practically. This seminar announces the next phase of the Network as an ongoing collaboration supported by QMUL and the Universities of Birmingham and Surrey, in association with the University of Adelaide.
