You are cordially invited to "Intersectional Conversations", a special event hosted by the Faculty of Law on Thursday 28th September 2017.

This afternoon session offers a unique introduction to intersectionality theory and its relevance to our work within the Faculty. Intersectionality will be discussed through a range of perspectives, including through the lens of ethnicity, disability, gender, sexuality, and class.  The event will take place in the English Lecture Theatre (St Cross Building OX13UL) from 13:00 to 17:00. A sandwich lunch will be served from 12:30, and a wine reception will be hosted from 17:00 onwards. The keynote speech will be delivered by Dr Hillary Potter from the University of Colorado. A full programme is outlined below.  

Spaces are limited, so early booking is advised: 

This is an excellent opportunity for those new to intersectionality to gain insight on this influential theory, and to discuss how the Faculty might build on these ideas moving forward.  

EDIT- This event was earlier being held in the Gulbenkian Lecture Theatre. Please note that we have changed the venue to the English Lecture Theatre.

UPDATE- Audio recordings of the keynote speech, panel 1, panel 2 and closing speech are now available.
