Content

Gender, sexuality, ethnicity and social class are axes of identification and structuration that all play central roles in the definition of power and resource inequalities in contemporary societies. Combining contributions from gender & sexuality studies, migration studies and critical race theory, this seminar examines the functioning of these axes of differentiation and identification by focusing on how they combine in diverse arenas and interactional settings. We will introduce the concept of intersectionality, which in the past decades imposed itself as a key notion to think through the articulation between structures of power and their translations in individual existences. Case studies include among other: gender, class and sexuality in asylum policy, transnational care chains, race and class in the sociology of sexual orientation, diversity discourse and its critics, microagressions and safe spaces, post/decolonial critique and transnational feminist alliances, the place of women in the economic elite, racialized masculinities and the police, and contemporary controversies on the truth of race and gender.
