Senior Research ScholarsProject for the History of
Georgetown University, Washington, DC
The Project has a major interest in feminine and
feminist ideas of care, which are the principal focal point of the
predominance of contemporary inquiries into care and the
application of this idea in fields such as philosophy, theology,
ethics, educational theory, philosophy of health care, etc.
Because feminine and feminist notions of care are quite
accessible, the first phase of the Project has concerned itself
with other, less-well-known ideas and issues in the history of
care. The following is a partial list of the Senior Research
