Thinking about care

March 4, 2009

We are a group of people who think about care. We are researchers, writers, activists, policy analysists, parents, partners, children, and friends.  We give and receive care every day. We are also cultural and institutional analysts who focus on the factors that affect people’s capacity and willingness to care for each other. We pay particularly close attention to social inequality, to work, consumption and insecurity, to dependency and need, and to the linkages between “private troubles and public issues.”
