International symposium


Care ethics experienced a “rebirth” in France at the beginning of the 21st century under the influence of Carol Gilligan and Joan Tronto, following the publication of the groundbreaking collection Le Souci des autres, éthique et politique du care in 2006, and the second publication of the French translation of In a Different Voice in 2008, up until the publication of her new book, In a Human Voice, in 2024. During this period, different voices have been heard on the subject and have given rise to an original polyphonic approach to care. The notion has spread to many different fields and has become an essential reference in contemporary thought, so much so that it has led to new approaches and perspectives in ethical and political thought under the influence of this resolutely feminist approach.
Are we witnessing a new moment of care? What forms is it taking? What are its objects? What visions of the future is it suggesting?
The aim of this international symposium, centered on the pioneering figure of Carol Gilligan, who will be attending, is to take stock of the progress achieved in care studies in the 21st century with French-speaking researchers working in care, on care and with care in France and beyond, particularly in the fields of bioethics, ecology and new technologies.

The symposium will focus on four main themes:

(I) An Age of Care?
(II) Care and the Environment
(III) Care and Healthcare
(IV) Care and New Technologies / Artificial Intelligence
