intersectionality


Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

The interconnections and interdependence of race with other categories (K. Crenshaw et al. 1995). Wills (2008) Antipode 40, 1 believes that geography has real strength as a discipline for the study of intersectionality: ‘to understand the ways in which class intersects with other social cleavages, with very different e/affects.’ Understanding such intersectionality at the local level can help in mapping larger-scale trends in the geography of class and employment; see A. Ong (2006). G. Valentine (2007) argues that feminist geography needs to use the concept of intersectionality to theorize the complex relationship between and within different social categories: ‘the specific debate about intersectionality as a concept has not yet been played out within geography despite its obvious spatial connotations.’ See also Valentine (2008) PHG32, 3.
