Simien co-edits symposium on Intersectionality Research

Profs. Evelyn M. Simien and Ange-Marie Hancock (University of Southern California) co-edited a mini-symposium on intersectionality research that will appear in Political Research Quarterly in March 2011.

The editors explain that “Intersectionality research is defined principally by its focus on the simultaneous and interactive effects of race, gender, class, sexual orientation, and national origin as categories of difference in the United States and beyond. This symposium is a conscious attempt to draw on our expertise in intersectionality and our identities as political scientists to spotlight different approaches to intersectionality. Part of our goal is thus to facilitate the development of innovative theoretical arguments and new empirical research designs in this area of scholarship by featuring examples of intersectionality research from distinct subfields.”
