Intimate Economies of the Nonhuman Workshop
Icon calendar
Saturday, November 02, 2019
Icon time
9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Icon speaker
Alex Blanchette, Maura Finkelstein, Radhika Govindrajan, Ingrid Meintjes, Juno Parrenas and Harris Solomon

This workshop brings together scholars working at the intersections of feminist scholarship on the political economy of "care work" and post-humanist scholarship on nonhuman actors. Does the intimate economy of care look differently when the objects of care are more than human? Are non-human care-workers significant to emerging economies of care as well as global infrastructures of capital and labor?
Papers will be pre-circulated to all who are attending and have emailed an RSVP
