Our research and scholarship problematizes conventional understandings of “family” in theory, practices and policies and this expanded view of families and relationships extends to critical research on meanings, practice and policies of work and care.

Our objective is to build a professional and reciprocal network of scholars who take a critical lens to the sociological study of families and their relationships to meanings, practices, and policies of work and care.

We envisage the cluster as an opportunity to network, share research and teaching information, and a means to highlight members’ research through expanded and coordinated CSA conference sessions.

In addition to coordinating CSA conference sessions, we offer a listserve for members to share information, resources and opportunities. We also regularly post updates on this CSA web page.
