COWAP Revisiting the Maternal: The Future of Care
with Sally Weintrobe
Sally Weintrobe (UK) will discuss various elements of the environmental crisis, and the question of the future; Our survival depends upon care being sufficiently strong to hold uncare in check. Care requires a culture of care. Neoliberalism’s culture of uncare has waged war on care, stripping us of our sense of community. It has promoted false binaries that dehumanise.. We cannot imagine let alone build a world that supports life unless we can deconstruct the insidious categories that continue to fracture our psychic landscapes. One example concerns gender and maternal forms of care that go unrewarded.. ‘Care economics’ is emerging to radically challenge this framing.
