The conference will take place on 15 May 2023.
The notion of care, traditionally addressed in classical ethics and/or feminism, is increasingly present in discussions around the most acute issues of the present day, including: war, pandemics, climate crisis, political instability, economic inequality. In the public discourse in Slavic countries 鈥 unlike in English-speaking and Scandinavian countries 鈥 a fragmentation of the understanding of care may be seen, as evidenced, i.a., by the heterogeneity of terminology: the English care in Polish corresponds to such terms as troska, opieka, us艂ugi medyczne, 艣wiadczenie troski, zatroskanie, solidarno艣膰 spo艂eczna and others. Despite the multiplicity of approaches, care is consistently associated with the ethics of love and doing good and is juxtaposed with the individualistic concept of man as a ‘lonely island’.
With the subject of the conference we want to join the academic discussion on the development of the idea of care and its implementation in social and institutional practice, culture, language, education, politics, legislation, environmental protection and other fields. We are interested in unique attitudes to, and practices of care in Central and Eastern Europe shaped in the period after the Lisbon Treaty establishing the European Community (2007).
馃搶We welcome researchers from various disciplines in the area of humanities and social sciences to obtain different perspectives in an attempt to answer such fundamental questions as:
馃敻what is care and what is care-lessness;
馃敻what are practical and theoretical dimensions of care;
馃敻how do we talk about care and ‘with care’;
馃敻is care a personal and social imperative;
馃敻how is care perceived and implemented in Poland and in other countries of Central and Eastern Europe.
馃摙 The conference will be held in Polish, Bulgarian and English.

The conference will be held in an on-site format at the Institute of Western and Southern Slavonic Studies, University of Warsaw and at New Bulgarian University, and remotely on the Zoom platform.

 Organisers do not provide a fee for attending the conference.
We look forward to working with you!
