Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Questions of care have increasingly attracted public as well as scientific interests. Nevertheless, the concept has not become central in theoretical debates within anthropology. This neglect is surprising in light of the central interest in formation and reproduction of meaningful relations within the discipline since its beginnings. This course approaches care as fundamental for social organization and conveys an overview of the conceptual development as well as central topics in relation to care. Themes range from Care in families and institutions, to care and transnational migration and Care as politics. On the basis of our joint readings we will ask: How does care produce but also dissolve meaningful relation? Anhand der gemeinsamen Lektüre soll gefragt werden: Wie entstehen durch Care bedeutsame Bindungen? Which (unintended) consequences of care can be detected? How can we research social organisation through care?
