Social Rights and Domestic Labor

Lecture Description

This talk looks at the questions of citizenship rights and social policy around domestic labor, from the New Deal to the present. It compares theories of hierarchy and domestic status law with those from disability studies (in particular, Martha Nussbaum’s ideas about capabilities) to rethink notions of solidarity and rights for new forms of service labor.
