International Conference: Celebrating Intersectionality? 22.-23.01.2009, Frankfurt

Celebrating Intersectionality? Debates on a multi-faceted Concept in Gender Studies

Zeit: January 22 and 23, 2009
Ort: Goethe-University Frankfurt – Germany
Over the last decade, the concept of ‚intersectionality‘ has attracted much attention in international feminist debates. It was embraced as well as repelled by many scholars and at the same time, it has made an incredible international career. Twenty years after the concept was coined by Kimberlé Crenshaw in 1989, it seems appropriate to bring together protagonists as well as critics and discuss the ’state of the art‘ with those that have been influential in this debate.
Speakers, amongst others: Helma Lutz (Goethe-Universität Frankfurt), Nira Yuval Davis (University of East London), Kathy Davis (University of Utrecht), Ann Phoenix (Institute of Education, University of London), Gloria Wekker (University of Utrecht), Dubravka Zarkov (Institute of Social Studies, The Hague), Jeff Hearn (Linköping University, Sweden; Swedish School of Economics, Helsinki, Finland; and University of Huddersfield, UK), Nina Lykke (University of Linkoeping), Gail Lewis (Open University, Milton Keynes).
