Intersectionality in Light of Histories of Global Intersectional Feminism 

This talk will delve into the meaning of intersectionality or, more specifically, intersectional discrimination. It will consider how that meaning is derived from the substantive contributions of Black feminist thought and whether these contributions coincide with intersectional feminism of groups outside the US, and in particular, Dalit feminist thought in India. The discussion will be led by Shreya Atrey and Achas Burin, who will be discussing chapter 2 of Shreya's book Intersectional Discrimination (Oxford University Press 2019) which offers a definition of intersectional discrimination and compares histories of intersectional feminist thought. The participants are invited to share their own understanding of intersectionality and bring along examples of intersectional feminism from around the world.
