Part of the Social Justice series
This collection addresses the present and the future of the concept of intersectionality within socio-legal studies.
Intersectionality provides a metaphorical schema for understanding the interaction of different forms of disadvantage, including race, sexuality, and gender.
But it also goes further to provide a particular model of how these aspects of social identity and location converge - whether at the level of subjectivity, everyday life, in culture or in the institutional practices of state and other bodies.
Including contributions from a range of international scholars, this book interrogates what has become a key organizing concept across a range of disciplines, most particularly law, political theory, and cultural studies.
