The Ethics of Now with Angela Garbes

Join the Kenan Institute for Ethics and host Adriane-Lentz Smith for a conversation with Angela Garbes on radicalism, justice, and mothering.
Author of "Essential Labor: Mothering as Social Change" and "Like A Mother: A Feminist Journey through the Science and Culture of Pregnancy," Angela Garbes takes us beyond platitudes to talk about mothering as work—work that is power-bound but also lifted up by radical hope. Through an approach that is rigorously analytical and deeply personal, she reminds us that care—nurturing and affirming life—can lead us toward a better world, if only we value it enough.

Copies of "Essential Labor" will be available for purchase, courtesy of the Regulator Bookshop. A book signing will follow the event.
Masks are strongly encouraged at the Durham Arts Council. Seating is first come, first served.

The Ethics of Now is a series of conversations between Duke historian Adriane Lentz Smith and a range of artists, advocates, and authors that explore the ethical challenges facing the Durham and Duke communities.
