Introduction The celebration of 70 years of the British Universities Industrial Relations Association (BUIRA) is an apt time to consider contemporary challenges and discussions within industrial relations (IR), and this chapter is a contribution to those discussions. More specifically, it examines the relationship between intersectionality and IR, which continues to be ambiguous, undefined and full of tensions. At the same time, it is full of conceptual, theoretical, methodological and empirical possibilities. In 2006 and 2015, Holgate et al (2006) and

149 NINE Working with intersectional identities As outlined in Chapter Two, we believe that the relationship between youth violence and various social and cultural categories such as gender, race and class is far from simple or mono-causal, and that youth workers need to develop a sophisticated analysis of how these factors are at play within the lives of the young people with whom they seek to engage. We saw merit in employing the notion of intersectionality (Crenshaw, 1991) as a theoretical framework to explain how these categories and other axes of

Key messages Epistemology is a core concern of intersectionality scholarship. How does epistemology shape the operationalization of intersectional projects? Researchers’ positionality, embodiment of privileges, and ethical responsibilities all shape intersectional methodology. Introduction Since its introduction in the academic field in the late 1980s 1 by the legal scholar Kimberlé W. Crenshaw ( 1989 ; 1991 ), the concept of ‘intersectionality’ has not only made a staple contribution to feminist scholarship, but also become a field of study

57 FIVE Care ethics, intersectionality and poststructuralism Nicki Ward Introduction Notions of identity, intersectionality and poststructuralism all involve a consideration of what it is to be ‘other’. As Simone de Beauvoir suggests: ‘Otherness is a fundamental category of human thought. Thus it is that no group even sets itself up as the One without at once setting up the Other’ (1972, p 17). While notions of ‘the one’ and ‘the other’ still inform understandings of identity, the categories that constitute oneness or otherness have become increasingly

/identities, presents an enormous challenge to operationalising such an approach. This is because the siloed approach: presupposes that social groups are marginalised homogenously and singularly; predetermines which factors and processes affect which social groups; effaces intersectional marginalisation; and serves the exclusive interests of those who are singularly disadvantaged. This single issue approach has produced little progress towards achieving equality for the most marginalised. Consequently, there is increasing recognition of the need for policies and organisations to

Stefan Wahlen: Welcome to this roundtable on intersectionality and food consumption. Together with Marie Plessz, we have prepared this roundtable to initiate a debate on this theoretical approach. Marie is going to introduce some basic ideas on intersectionality, maybe not everyone is familiar with the concept. After this brief introduction, four discussants are going to introduce themselves and how their research relates to intersectionality. We are already very curious to listen to your experiences, to your insights and a lively discussion. Now I pass the

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

A Utopia for Radical Interdependence

In the context of sustained economic and environmental crises, marked by extreme inequalities of wealth, rising xenophobia, racism and precarity, never has the need for a radical change of system been so pressing.

This book is an invitation to think the world otherwise. The author breathes new life into socialist thought through the deployment of an intersectional lens, bringing diverse struggles for emancipation both within and outside the Global North into dialogue with one another.

In doing so, he offers the kind of bold and holistic thinking the present situation calls for.

Key message Essential to understand TFV through structural and intersectional lenses to better ensure just policy approaches and support mechanisms for all. Introduction Technologically-facilitated violence (TFV) can take many shapes and forms. In this thought piece, we reflect on TFV from structural and intersectional perspectives, examining how these might change our understanding of TFV, with particular attention to gender-based TFV. We are motivated to engage in this reflection for two main reasons. First, traditional understandings of violence
