Intersectionality Here & Now

February 25, 2022

2:00 pm – 3:30 pm

It has been 33 years since Kimberlé Crenshaw first introduced “intersectionality” as a necessary analytic to understand the imbrications—the intersecting impacts—of race, gender, and sexuality.  And it could be argued that no other concept has been more utilized, misunderstood, and challenged in academia and politics. 

Intersectionality Here & Now reflects on this history to think with the debates surrounding intersectionality.  Specifically, where, when, and how are we doing this concept?  How are we teaching it, practicing it?  What is required to do the doing of intersectionality?  What can it yield?  And how does intersectionality contribute to transformative decolonial justice?

Join us for an engaging webinar with speakers who will take up these questions and provoke our thinking on the here and now of intersectionality.
