Event Description

TITLE: The Ethics of Care

DATE: March 15 & April 12, 2013

TIME: 8:30-3:00

LOCATION: University Hall, ADP Center, Room 1145

INSTRUCTOR: Dorothy Rogers, Ph.D.

In this two-day seminar, we will read and discuss recent work on the feminist "ethic of care."  We will start with historic background on feminine (not necessarily feminist) thought at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries that anticipated the "ethic of care" and consider the distinctions they point to -- between reason and emotion, justice and care.  We will then turn to the work of two critically important contemporary care theorists:  Nel Noddings and Virginia Held.  Noddings looks at maternal practice as a source of morality -- i.e., care.  She maintains that incorporating maternal values into society would provide a more balanced ethical framework and thus a more just world.  Held looks at the link between a personal morality and global issues.  In doing so, she puts forth a theory of care that works in combination with justice to bring equity, trust, and solidarity to global politics.   Participants will be encouraged to discuss their own understandings of the role that care plays -- or should play -- in society and political life.
