Description

Dr. Annie Russell, Director, LGBTQ Center. Every person is shaped by the multiple, yet interconnecting dimensions of their multiple identities. This workshop offers an introduction to the ways in which biological, cultural, and social categories such as gender, race, sexuality, socioeconomic class, ability, nationality, religion, and other axes of identity interact on multiple and simultaneous levels. Participants will develop their thinking around understanding and applying intersectionality theory and multiple identities; understanding the matrix of oppression; and developing awareness of social inequalities.
