Blurring Boundaries - Gender & Care

13.-15. März 2019
GERMANY, Augsburg
Organized by the interdiciplinary Bavarian Research Association for Gender & Care / Location: University of Augsburg / Langues: english
«At present, Western societies are undergoing multiple processes of profound change. Globalization, economization and transform formerly nationally organized industrial societies into markets within a highly interdependent global economy.  A transformation or dismantling of the Western welfare state can be observed. Simultaneously, a growing individualization of lifestyles and an increasing privatization of responsibilities entail an ongoing erosion of traditional (and often invisible) care networks. New employment patterns, pluralized family forms, changing gender roles, altered conceptions of maternity and paternity, changed family care net- works and the professionalization of hitherto rather privately organized care practices make it necessary to rethink care and its social organization.»
