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

Examining the Boundaries of Intersectionality and Crime
Editors: Jane Healy and Ben Colliver

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.

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

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

Multidisciplinary International Perspectives

Available Open Access under CC-BY-NC licence. With an increasingly diverse ageing population, we need to expand our understanding of how social divisions intersect to affect outcomes in later life.

This edited collection examines ageing, gender, and sexualities from multidisciplinary and geographically diverse perspectives and looks at how these factors combine with other social divisions to affect experiences of ageing. It draws on theory and empirical data to provide both conceptual knowledge and clear ‘real-world’ illustrations.

The book includes section introductions to guide the reader through the debates and ideas and a glossary offering clear definitions of key terms and concepts.

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
