Gender and Race, Intersectionality Theory of

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingEntry for encyclopedia/dictionary


    Despite long‐standing concerns around gender and race as distinct issues, critical commentaries on the intersections of gender and race often emerge as peripheral concerns in mainstream anthropology. This is despite the widespread recognition of intersectionality, a concept aimed at unpacking how gender, race, and other social orders come to inform oppression in distinct and varied ways. What conditions undermine a wider embrace of intersectionality in mainstream anthropology? How has the discipline engaged the intersections of gender and race? And what are the intersectional possibilities of anthropological inquiry?
