In this reading seminar session we are collectively building up a conceptualization of radical care, or the radical potential of care. How can care be conceived in relation to social reproduction but not as reproducing capitalism, where care reflects relations of support that produce different kinds of subjects among the carers?
The session is dedicated to open, seminar-style discussion of several texts (listed below) - like a one-time reading group. We hope that session attendees will join the conversation as full participants. To this end we encourage all attendees to read the required texts in advance.
