Intersectionality: Theory, Method, and Praxis

SOCIOLOGY 5313

This graduate-level seminar course draws on sociological research, while also drawing on other disciplines and texts by activists themselves. We will consider intersectionality theory and its application and "travel" to various spaces including online. In what ways does intersectionality require critical race analysis? In what ways does intersectionality differ on the page as compared to embodied spaces such as social movements? Throughout the course, we will be attentive to the (seeming) tension between intersectionality as a theoretical tool and intersectionality as praxis. In addition to discussion of theory building and content, we will consider the politics of research and how these issues relate to students' own projects. To that end, we will practice a range of learning modalities.
