CHIWORK Dec 9 – Roundtable on the Future of Care Work

December 9, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm UTC

Please join us at the final CHIWORK session of this year for a roundtable on the future of care work! Details are below:
Please join us at 4 pm London / 8 am Seattle / 9.30 pm New Delhi on Thursday 9th December for a roundtable with Naveena Karusala, Azra Ismail, Cella Sum, Elizabeth Fetterolf, Anthony Poon, Melissa Renau Cano, Ambika Tandon, Abhishek Sekharan, and Neha Kumar.
Abstract: The deep necessity and simultaneous devaluation of care infrastructures in many societies across the world signals how care work and its futures are subject to unique power dynamics compared to other work. We thus need to attend to the broader social, political, and economic systems that shape care work and the emerging technologies being used in it. Researchers who came together around this topic at a CSCW 2021 workshop are excited to further the conversation through this CHIWORK roundtable discussion. We invite researchers and practitioners to join us in asking several critical questions of the future of care work: How is care work (de)valued, (in)visibilized, or coerced under capitalism and to what end? What narratives drive the push for technology in care work and whom does it benefit? Who controls narratives of the future of work and what insights does a focus on care work open up? And how can we as researchers advocate for and with care and caregivers?
