Intersectionality

Convenor:
Charlotte Skeet

A special edition of Signs – The Journal of Women in Culture and Society in Summer 2013 argued that intersectionality has “... become one of feminist and critical race theory’s most generative concepts.” Yet it is still relatively little used within legal studies when compared to other disciplines. This broad stream welcomes papers which analyse the creation or perpetuation of discrimination from an intersectional perspective; whether conceptual, theoretical or empirical. Papers might examine political, structural, or representational intersectionality. They could address national, European or international law, norms which influence rights interpretation or constitutional discourse, cover aspects of policy or practice or examine the dynamics within social or political movements for change. These are examples only and this list is not exhaustive.

Do feel free to contact me at c.h.skeet@sussex.ac.uk if you want to discuss your paper.

Abstracts may only be submitted via the Easy Chair Platform. They must be no longer than 300 words and should include your title, name and institutional affiliation and your email address for correspondence.

The deadline for submissions is 6pm Monday 14th March.
