CARE ETHICS IN THE AGE OF PRECARITY

19-11-2021 @ 12:00 - 13:30

Maurice Hamington and Michael Flower will join a virtual event with the Elizabeth D. Rockwell Center on Ethics and Leadership at the University of Houston on Friday, November 19 at noon (CST) for the launch of their new book, Care Ethics in the Age of Precarity. Please register here to receive the virtual meeting information.

This book assembles an international group of interdisciplinary scholars to explore the question of care theory as a response to market-driven capitalism. It offers a hopeful tone in the growing valorization of care, demonstrating the need for an innovative approach to precarity within entrenched systems of oppression and a change in priorities around the basic needs of humanity.
