Care shows up in many ways and forms in HCI research and practice, and increasingly so. Touching upon some of these wide-ranging manifestations of care work in HCI worlds, this talk will go on to consider what futures of care work might look like. We will proceed then to discuss learnings for futures of work more broadly, and how we might infuse these with care.
