What is intersectionality? -- Intersectionality as critical inquiry and praxis -- Getting the history of intersectionality straight? -- Intersectionality's global dispersion -- Intersectionality and identity -- Intersectionality, social protest and neoliberalism -- Intersectionality and critical education -- Intersectionality revisited.
Collins and Bilge provide a much-needed, introduction to the field of intersectional knowledge and praxis. They analyze the emergence, growth and contours of the concept and show how intersectional frameworks speak to topics as diverse as human rights, neoliberalism, identity politics, immigration, hip hop, global social protest, diversity, digital media, Black feminism in Brazil, violence and World Cup soccer. Accessibly written and drawing on a plethora of lively examples to illustrate its arguments, the book highlights intersectionality's potential for understanding inequality and bringing about social justice oriented change.
