Consuming Intimacies: Bodies, Labour, Care, and Social Justice

October 15, 2015

 

October 15–16th, 2015

 

Couse, C. "Sick Negotiating Body Trauma through Visual Art Practice." 

 

This two-day symposium aims to re-think concepts and practices of intimacy and social justice issues through a wide spectrum of twenty-first-century intimate labours and their associated economies. We envisage two interconnected streams for papers, artistic contributions, and discussions. While underpinned by diverse transdisciplinary approaches and problematics, these two streams share a focus on intimacies and embodiment; entanglements of care, work, consumption, and commodification; varied forms of “global-intimate pairings” (Wilson, 2012); gender, class, and racial inequalities; and attention to matters of epistemic justice and injustice.
