Intersectionality at work? Perspectives and Possibilities
The theory of ‘intersectionalilty’ is increasingly applied in research to better understand the interconnections of specific markers of difference as well to demonstrate how structures of oppression and privilege operate within these markers. Often associated with studies about Black feminism and Black women, many new scholars, across different fields are now situating and aligning their research with intersectionality. In this presentation, the theory of intersectionality, how it was developed and how it has gained significant scholarship attention in regards to its contribution to theoretical construction and praxis, will be discussed. Attention to how this theory also works to address different forms of inequities in education, health and sexual health education will also be discussed.
