The workshop Visions of Care will take an interdisciplinary and comparative approach to care, engaging and generating debates among academics and practitioners. In attending to care in the clinic and beyond, how are we to understand the relationship between care and power? Choice and coercion? Self and other? What possibilities does an analytic of care hold for health systems, clinical relations, and our understandings of accountability, attention, and presence? How do the “science of medicine” and the “art of care” play out in present-day approaches to health? What does it mean to provide “good” care?
