Who Cares? Ethics and politics of care in uncertain times

Urban event
17.15 - 20.45
Helsinki Collegium for Advanced Studies
Fabianinkatu 24 A, 3rd floor

An open office hour invites guests to learn about Collegium fellows’ current research in humanities and social sciences. After that a roundtable discussion with fellows addresses the concepts of care and belonging. Should our societies become more caring – and if so, then how? Does caring for some mean excluding others? We will finish the event with a music performance by Astrid Swan
