and

The Care Work Symposium, with

Irene Jor’s account of why and how the National Domestic Worker’s Alliance builds power,

Eileen Boris’s exploration of the relationship between domestic/care work and environmentalism,

Robyn Rodriguez’s contextualization of domestic work and care work in a global racial capitalism framework,

Allison Hoffman’s discussion of the necessity for a policy for long-term care in the United States,

and Noah Zatz’s call for big structural reform of the political economy of care work economy.

 

In addition, we featured posts from:

Sarah Quinn on the way that social problems become financial problems through credit policy,

Joseph Fishkin on the bad arguments against access to medical care as a basic right,

Frank Pasquale on the shift to structural concerns in the “second wave of algorithmic accountability”,

and Tendayi Achiume on reconceptualizing migration as part of the project of decolonization.
In this coming week, we will round out our LPE in Europe symposium. Next week we will begin a new symposium on global value chains. Stay tuned to find out if we will also be able to shimmy in another round up before the new year.
