In this CRIPT-sponsored roundtable, participants will discuss the recently published Care and the Pluriverse: Rethinking Global Ethics by Maggie FitzGerald. After initial comments by the author, Fiona Robinson, Vivienne Jabri and Kimberly Hutchings will offer their reflections on the book. Q&A will follow.
From the book’s description: “A perennial debate in the field of global ethics revolves around the possibility of a universalist ethics as well as arguments over the nature, and significance, of difference for moral deliberation. Decolonial literature, in particular, increasingly signifies a pluriverse – one with radical ontological and epistemological differences. This book examines the concept of the pluriverse alongside global ethics and the ethics of care in order to contemplate new ethical horizons for engaging across difference. Offering a challenge to the current state of the field, this book argues for a rethinking of global ethics as it has been conceived thus far.”
