The Political is Personal: Gender, Health and Care

On April 16th and 17th, 2015, EUSP hosted an international conference organized by the Gender Studies Program with support from the EUSP’s Committee on Academic Planning. The motto “the personal is political” is widely known in the social sciences. But by including the personal in the political sphere we often forget that politics permeate social relations and life at a micro level: in caring for vulnerable social groups, in professional activities, and in bodily practices. This two-day conference was devoted to the convergence of the political and personal in the broadest sense.
