The course is designed for developing researchers exploring the theoretical frameworks about ‘intersectional’ thinking and approaches. The course will review the development of intersectionality from a Black Feminist Sociology perspective including the notion of ‘post-intersectionality’, as well as modernist/structural and post-constructivist versions of intersectionality. We will also explore theories of power, cultural competence, identity, and subjectivity. In addition, we will examine qualitative methodology as it relates to intersectionality in the research paradigm.

Participants’ will be encouraged to share extracts from their work in order to explore ways in which a broadly intersectional framework can assist with thinking and conducting research. There will be time for in depth exploration of dimensions of intersectionality including; age, race and racialisation, ethnicity, religion, gender, sexuality, sexualisation, social class, disability and ability. 

The overall aim is to provide an interactive session that enables the participants to work through a range of planned activities whilst engaging in intersectional thinking. The course will require students to draw on intersectional frameworks to analyze educational research as well as to develop a stronger research agenda.
