Beyond Buzzwords: Intersectionality: Theory, Framework, Practice
Intersectionality has become a buzzword used often and often misused. This course examines and engages with primary resources of intersectionality as a theory, framework, and practice. We will discuss how this practice and theory has expanded, critiques, and ways we have done intersectionality incorrectly along with strategies for being better about each part of this critical practice.
Participants will examine and engage with intersectionality as a theory, framework, and praxis.
By the end of this course participants will be able to:
- Discuss the origins of intersectionality as a critical race theory
- List the ways structural, institutional, and systemic bias and oppression impact individuals
- Create a plan of action for including an intersectional praxis / practice in work and life / community
