Intersectionality is often used as a lens to recognise, discuss, and address the ways in which systems of inequity intersect to produce relations of power and (dis)advantage (Crenshaw, 1991). In this session we will explore the role of intersectionality within the walls of higher education, particularly in relation to our practice as educators. The aim of this session is to discuss the history of intersectionality and what it means for higher education in respect to inclusive education.
The session will consider the following:
- Definitions and critiques
- Intersectionality and the Inclusive Education Action Plan (IEAP)
- Practical uses of intersectionality
