Ecologie della cura: Prospettive transfemministe

Translated title of the contribution: Ecologies of care: Transfeminist perspectives

Maddalena Fragnito, Miriam Tola

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


Caring is a devalued job and, at the same time, a relationship involving humans, non-humans and technologies. What does it mean to take care at a time of soaring social inequalities, health, and ecological crises? By starting from different geopolitical coordinates and transfeminist and anti-racist perspectives, the book brings together contributions that focus on the ambiguities and paradoxes of care. It explores theories and practices of self-defence, repair and healing that support bodies and communities searching for alternatives to the neoliberal organisation of care. Rather than assuming it as positive sentiment, this book problematises care to reorient it in the time ahead. Methodologically the book is grounded in concrete eco/trans/feminist struggles that open up theoretical paths for thinking care and ecology together.
