This panel theorizes the relation between care, reproductive labor, and the global intimate from a hemispheric standpoint. Focusing on the literary geographies of care that transpire through the literatures of the Americas, this panel explores the valences of literary form for thinking care topologically. Panelists explore the relation between capital accumulation, social reproduction, and spatial justice while analyzing the intimate as a literary domain that brings to light the economic, ecological, and political intersections comprising the ongoing crisis of the neoliberal social order.
