CSGS Care@Chicago | 2017

The CSRPC is proud to co-sponsor the February 2017 Care@Chicago series, organized by The Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality.  

The University of Chicago is associated more with rigor, ambition and social division than care and caring: care is traditionally associated with women and emotions, often delegated to the economically hyper-exploited, and not often considered central to the life of ideas. But however unevenly distributed, vulnerability, stress, and compensations for them are everywhere in our immediate as well as larger cultural environment.

Care@Chicago will investigate structural stressors and reparative acts and practices for individuals and communities in the contemporary world.

All events are free and open to the public.
