Care in the Nineteenth Century (And Beyond) (Course or Curricular Material)
Title: Care in the Nineteenth Century (And Beyond)
Author: Jayda Coons
Abstract: What does literary studies offer to care theory? ● ways of reading nuanced, textured interactions and encounters ● imagining relationalities/ambivalences not always captured by “big picture” or ideal thinking ● promoting new relationalities, imagining new worlds ● subjectivity formation–we attach to stories as ways of living and being in the world, models for living, and to understand, critique, and imagine anew ● opportunities for presentism–how do these historical structures of everyday life reverberate in our contemporary moment? ● care and colonialism intertwined in this period–course also serves as a critique of whiteness and its weaponized ideas of “care”
