Description - Materialities of Care by Christina Buse

Materialities of Care addresses the role of material culture within health and social care encounters, including everyday objects, dress, furniture and architecture.

Makes visible the mundane and often unnoticed aspects of material culture and attends to interrelations between materials and care in practice

Examines material practice across a range of clinical and non-clinical spaces including hospitals, hospices, care homes, museums, domestic spaces and community spaces such as shops and tenement stairwells

Addresses fleeting moments of care, as well as choreographed routines that order bodies and materials

Focuses on practice and relations between materials and care as ongoing, emergent and processual

International contributions from leading scholars draw attention to methodological approaches for capturing the material and sensory aspects of health and social care encounters
