The Carework Network is organizing a 2nd three-day conference to bring together carework researchers from across disciplines and across the globe.
The Carework Network is an international organization of scholars and advocates who focus on the caring work of individuals, families, communities, paid caregivers, social service agencies and state bureaucracies. Care needs are shifting globally with changing demographics, disability movements, and climate change driven environmental crises. Our mission is to address critical issues related to carework, such as how identities influence carework; how inequality structures carework; how caring work is recognized and compensated; how state policies influence the distribution of care; working conditions of care; and whether and to what extent citizens have a right to receive, and a right to provide, care. Scholars and advocates working on issues related to elder care, child care, health care, social work, education, political theory of care, social reproduction, work/family, disability studies, careworker health and safety, and related issues are encouraged to submit proposals.
The first Global Carework Summit was held in 2017
The Carework Network welcomes submissions from all academic disciplines, advocacy and non-profit organizations, and public and private sector organizations. We also encourage participation by undergraduate and graduate students. We invite proposals for papers, fully-constituted panels, or workshops.
Authors and organizers should submit a proposal of their paper, panel, or workshop by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org (by e-mail only) no later than December 1, 2018.
Decisions regarding acceptances should be made by January 31, 2019.
Funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada.
