Materialities of Care addresses the role of material culture within health and social care encounters, including everyday objects, dress, furniture and architecture.

  • Makes visible the mundane and often unnoticed aspects of material culture and attends to interrelations between materials and care in practice
  • Examines material practice across a range of clinical and non-clinical spaces including hospitals, hospices, care homes, museums, domestic spaces and community spaces such as shops and tenement stairwells
  • Addresses fleeting moments of care, as well as choreographed routines that order bodies and materials
  • Focuses on practice and relations between materials and care as ongoing, emergent and processual
  • International contributions from leading scholars draw attention to methodological approaches for capturing the material and sensory aspects of health and social care encounters
