Intersectionality and Identity

SOC 245
Fall 2020
Section: 01  
Crosslisting: AMST 254, FGSS 245
Course Cluster and Certificates: Social, Cultural, and Critical Theory Certificate

Intersectionality has emerged as a central motif within both social analysis and political debate. We will examine the origins of this framework within black feminism and women-of-color activism, as well as the way this framework traveled to, and is used within, sociology and other disciplines. The course will also address critiques of intersectionality that have emerged within and outside of feminist theory, and extends the concept of intersectionality to think through intersections between various social identities and social institutions such as capitalism and colonialism.
