Yoonjung Kang "Culture of Care or Care of Culture?: The Politics of Postpartum Care in Contemporary South Korea"
December 6, 12:00 - 1:30 pm  
1080 Foreign Languages Building

This paper reflects on the concept of care, by examining South Korea’s subsidized postpartum care which has been recently promoted by the state as a milestone towards a “caring” society. By tracing the design and implementation of the policy and social discourses on the maternity care project, this paper shows how the ethico-moral value of care coexists with paternalistic governance of the nation-state as well as the market paradigm of care commodification.
