Special Issue "Intersectionality: Disentangling the Complexity of Inequality"
A special issue of Societies (ISSN 2075-4698).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 November 2016).
Interests: sociology of the family; race, class, and gender; intersectionality; race relations; qualitative methodology
This issue will investigate how intersectionality is being applied to address 21st century phenomena of inequality, given the changing dynamics of such things as racism and sexism. It seeks research that places race, gender, and class at its bedrock, even if that research integrates one or more other axes of social difference. The intellectual works of this volume conceive of intersectionality as the multiplicity of social positions held by a group of people or as the capacity of multiple forms of oppression to simultaneously subjugate. Ultimately, these contributions explicate just how these intersections bare upon the freedoms, opportunities and outcomes of people contemporarily.
This volume will be situated among the vast number of books and articles written on the subject of intersectionality, but will consist of a collection of works that focus on this time in history, and that attempt to project into the future.
