“Ecologies of Care” is part of the new series of events dedicated to questions of social justice launched by the Institute for Diversity and Gender Studies at University Mozarteum. The series of events titled “Social Justice” is based on the principles of radical intersectionality. The series relates to debates on current feminist revolutions and uprisings, while examining historical legacies of advanced feminist research, gender studies and queer theory and addressing sexuality and gender relations from an ethical perspective. By taking a critical stance towards all relations of production, the series seeks to contribute to the reduction of discrimination within the university and beyond by promoting social justice through access to democratic participation and the equal distribution of wealth and privilege for everybody.
