Memory work and social work – reimagining ancestry
Niagara, NI:C1129, Nordenskiöldsgatan 1
Allmänt seminarium på institutionen för socialt arbete.
Kris Clarke, PhD in Social Work, associate professor of social work in the Faculty of Social Sciences at the University of Helsinki examines how social memory has been constructed in US social work via the founding mothers of Jane Addams and Mary Richmond—and then spread globally.
The origin story of social work serves to preserve binaries (clinical vs. community) that have often prevented more holistic and relational views emerging. It explores how dominant narratives have often hidden diverse counter-narratives of social activism in the field of social work and discusses how emerging historical scholarship in social work challenges dominant views of what social work does (or should do).
