Intersectionality: A Space for Theoretical and Practitioner Discussion

Friday 21st-Saturday 22nd November, 2014

Intersectionality is a way of visualising what the courst could not see…the combined discrimination experienced by being black and a woman
Kimberlé Crenshaw, 2014.

The Race in the Americas (RITA) group presents a two-day conference bringing together academics, activists and practitioners who share a concern for and interest in intersectionality. The event will include:

  • Academic presentations on the theme of intersectaionlity
  • Activist and practitioner presentations on how and why intersectionality features in their work
  • A roundatable discussion involving academics, activists and practitioners fleshing out a comparison between the intersectionality which is theorised in academia and the intersectionality which guides activists and practitioners in the everyday

The organisers invite proposals from academics, practitioners, those who identify their work to be intersectional in focus and application, undergraduate and postgraduate students across disciplines, as well as activists, public policy theorists and members of civil society organisations to submit proposals that focus on, or include, the theme of ‘intersectionality’.

Please send proposals of 250-300 words for a 20-minutes presentation along with a brief biography to info@raceintheamericas.com by Monday 18th August, 2014.
