Landscape of Terms: Expanding a Lexicon

In response to the theme of CAFx2021 'Landscapes of Care', Soft Agency has produced a Landscape of Terms to expand the terminology around the notion of care.


This “landscape of terms” is composed of quotes, ideas and concepts that Soft Agency has encountered during our recent years of practice. Its inclusion in the collection of articles we have produced for this journal in response to the theme “landscapes of care” stemmed from a desire to expand the terminology around – and beyond – the word “care”. The term has gained new currency in recent years, but with this increased traction comes the danger that its meanings and potency become diluted and flattened. The expansion of this lexicon constitutes both a provocation and demand that the complex and multiple dimensions of care be acknowledged, in order to further and better employ manifold practices of care.
