Workshop 2: Children and Institutional Care

22nd of July 2015 at The University of Adelaide

Guest Speaker: Emily Munro

Whilst the affective dimensions of care and their absences within families are well recognised, how institutions ‘care’, whether they can or should, and the considerable anxiety that caring institutions create within society was interrogated.
