Intersectionality is a way of visualising what the courts 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 intersectionality
Activist and practitioner presentations on how and why intersectionality features in their work
A roundtable 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
We 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’.
