Despite radical changes in family formations, domestic labor still remains raced, gendered, and otherwise devalued. This panel brings together experts from various fields to examine not only who cares about the family, but who does not, who should, and why. Our distinguished speakers will include Patricia Hill Collins (University of Maryland), author of Black Feminist Thought: Knowledge, Consciousness, and the Politics of Empowerment; Joan Williams (University of California at Hastings), author of Unbending Gender: Why Family and Work Conflict and What to Do About It; and Rhacel Salazar Parreñas (Brown), author of The Force of Domesticity. Alyson Cole, Resident Mellon Fellow at the Center for the Humanities and author of The Cult of True Victimhood: From the War on Welfare to the War on Terror, will moderate the conversation.
