Practices of Intersectionality - GENDER AND POWER IN POLITICS AND MANAGEMENT
27 Mar 2014
Practices of Intersectionality - GENDER AND POWER IN POLITICS AND MANAGEMENTIn different disciplines and domains, the discussion about dealing with intersecting inequalities is gaining prominence. This one day symposium focuses on how intersectionality is done in a variety of contexts. We want to bring together scholars working at the vanguard of these discussions to explore together the ideas, concepts and challenges on practices of intersectionality in management, academia, politics, the economy and society at large. In line with what has been termed the practice turn in social sciences, we are particularly interested in discursive and material ways of dealing with and speaking about intersecting inequalities linked to theoretical debates on intersectionality. These debates currently seem to center on hierarchies and relations between inequalities, on to what extent the inclusion of multiple inequalities enhances the qualities of outcomes and on the dynamics of struggles between stakeholders who represent varieties of inequalities. Because the context specificity of questions of intersectionality often hinders productive dialogues and theoretical advancement, this symposium is set up explicitly as an interdisciplinary conversation in line with the ambitions of the hotspot.
