This is the first collection dedicated to the use of intersectionality as theory, framework and methodology in criminological research.
It draws together contemporary British research to demonstrate the value of intersectionality theory in both familiar and innovative applications, including race, gender, class, disability, sexual orientation and age. Experts explore a range of experiences relating to harm, hate crimes and offending, and demonstrate the impacts of oppression on complex personal identities that do not fit neatly in homogenised communites.
Challenging conventional perspectives, it positions intersectionality firmly into the mainstream of criminology.
Key message Intersectional praxis is driven by dual bridges: the bridges of coalition created by social movement actors; and the bridges of interventionist analytics operative in an intersectional-decolonial logic. This dual bridge model of intersectional praxis allows social movement actors to engage in productive coalitions that can effect formal political change, here in passage of multiple equality laws. Introduction In 2012, Uruguay became the second country in Latin America to decriminalise abortion. In 2013, it went on to legalise equal, or
– say on university campuses – may be useful in working towards open and equal treatment within such contexts; however, hate may then be experienced in other contexts, such as on the way to and from campus, on public transport or in nearby shopping areas. Moreover, the context itself may be the target of hate – regardless of the social group that utilizes it and so the spatializing of hate requires sensitivity to such diversity. Intersectional The chapters in this book explore experiences of hate for a diverse range of different groups and critically reflect
Introduction Intersectionality is arguably one of the most significant and certainly one of the most talked about concepts developed in recent times. Its foundations were grounded in the experiences of black women ( Crenshaw, 1989 ; Crenshaw, 1991 ; Hill Collins and Bilge, 2016 ) but it has since been expanded and co-opted and is now considered a prominent feminist concept that generates a large amount of debate and discussion ( Anthias, 2014 ). This chapter considers the development of intersectionality, from the early work of black critical race scholars
This pioneering book demonstrates the disproportionate impact of state responses to COVID-19 on racially marginalized communities.
Written by women and queers of colour academics and activists, the book analyses pandemic lockdowns, border controls, vaccine trials, income support and access to healthcare across eight countries, in North America, Asia, Australasia and Europe, to reveal the inequities within, and between countries.
Putting intersectionality and economic justice at the heart of their frameworks, the authors call for collective action to end the pandemic and transform global inequities.
Contributing to debates around the effects of COVID-19, as well as racial capitalism and neoliberal globalization at large, this research is invaluable in informing future policy
297 SIXTEEN Intersectional experiences of young migrant women in Istanbul Bayram Ünal As of the early 1990s, we have witnessed increasing immigration to Turkey in line with the integration of Istanbul in the globalized economy as an important node in a world-city system (Sonmez, 1995; Keyder, 1999; Gedik, 2000; Hacisalihoglu, 2000; Radikal, 2001; Sibel, 2001; Turkiye Gazetesi, 2002). As an integral part of the global capitalist system since early 1990s, Istanbul has seen an increasing informal economy due to its geographical position and generally
Introduction In this chapter, we take the opportunity to draw together some of the common themes and areas of crossover produced by the individual contributors. We also reflect on some of the key issues identified throughout the book that warrant further investigation, utilizing an intersectional framework to enhance our understanding of such relevant topics. Our aim is to centre criminological and Criminal Justice research that is conducted and analysed intersectionally, work that often remains on the margins of criminology in the UK. The chapters presented
PART II Crime, Harm and Criminal Justice Systems: Intersectionality’s Engagement with Crime and Deviance
51 THREE Education systems and intersectionality Christiane Gross, Anja Gottburgsen and Ann Phoenix Introduction Education remains one of the most important determinants of social inequalities across generations and the life course, and educational systems are the main places for generating these disparities (see Coleman et al, 1966; Boudon, 1974; Bourdieu, 1986; Barone and Schizzerotto, 2011).1 Empirical research into education identifies particular social groups that are particularly at risk of poor performance in various educational systems. Being male
This chapter focuses on current academic definitions of ‘intersectionality’ and highlights why the term is important for the delivery of health interventions for ethnic minority groups. In recognition of recent research on intersectionality, additional dimensions of difference and marginality for ethnic minority groups are discussed here (Reimer-Kirkham and Sharma, 2011 ; Mwangi and Constance-Huggins, 2017 ; Collins and Bilge, 2020 ). A brief exploration of some of the current health interventions and studies that employ an intersectional approach is
