The Carework Network will be hosting a mini-conference in conjunction with the annual meetings of the Eastern Sociological Society in New York February 26-March 1, 2015. We are seeking submissions related to care work broadly defined, especially those which focus on the conference theme of crossing borders. Topics may include:

But, actually, we’re mostly just getting the small, easy things done. Being busy does not equate to being effective."
