In this special issue of Essays in Philosophy, we aim to include essays focused on previously underexplored approaches to examining and practicing care ethics. We are seeking work that actively decenters understandings of care rooted in white, bourgeois, heteronormative domestic/kinship norms and practices.We understand this special issue as an exercise in doing care ethics otherwise. By this we mean (at least) two things. First, we are looking to the margins, to the underground, to unconventional domains to invite reflection on care ethics from those who are regularly othered or experience themselves as “the other.” Second, we are motivated to create this special issue with a focus on reimagining and remaking care ethics otherwise we risk neglecting important opportunities to
grow care ethics in new, more inclusive directions.
Essays in Philosophy publishes original articles and reviews that contribute to the scholarly literature on topics in philosophy, applied ethics, and public policy. This peer-reviewed, open-access journal is published by the Philosophy Documentation Center, in cooperation with Pacific University.
