    Join us for a roundtable discussion on Embodying CareCare Work and COVID-19, organized by Drew Danielle Belsky (PhD Candidate, York University). This virtual panel invites presenters and participants to explore the entanglements of gendered and colonial politics and the labour of caring for human bodies through the lens of the COVID-19 pandemic.  

    As vaccines begin to circulate, it is more important than ever for both scholars and activists to consider not only what a return to “normal” might mean for care and caregiving in Canada and throughout the world, but also what possibilities exist for doing care differently. From long-term disablement to prolonged economic instability and mounting social inequalities, the long-term effects of the pandemic on both individual bodies and on the social body remain uncertain. What lessons can be learned and what possibilities exist for constructing a more caring and care-full future?
