Care: Politics, Performances, Publics, Practices

GWS faculty Chris Garlough and Annie Menzel with Professor Michael Peterson from Art and Interdisciplinary Theater Studies are building a community of inquiry around the concept of “care” in their Mellon-Borghesi workshop, to deepen a collective understanding of care’s potential.  What does it encompass? How can we recognize it? What is its social and political promise? The Care Workshop has moved a variety of resources and its vibrant community online. See the Care Publication Archive.
