    Hosted By: Humanities Unbounded Revaluing Care Lab and the Department of Gender, Sexuality, and Feminist Studies (Duke University)

    The current pandemic has set in relief the longstanding “crisis of care” resulting from the undervaluing of the vast amounts of time, labor, and expertise needed to sustain our societies, our cultures, and our environments.  Universal basic income (UBI) has a long history and has been implemented in limited forms in various contexts.  This event brings together five experts from different perspectives to stage an open discussion about the possibilities for UBI as a more enduring solution to the crisis of care.
