In 1991, Crenshaw introduced the concept of intersectionality providing scholars a tool to identify and respond to nuanced and varied dimensions of privilege and oppression. Recent events such as Beyonce’s Formation Super Bowl performance reintroduced the concept into the mainstream consciousness. Individuals do not simply experience the world from one identity. The intersection of multiple identities creates a unique experience with racism, privilege, sexism, and classism. Applying this same concept to academia, are we truly allowed to come to the table with all our unique identities? In this session, doctoral students discuss how they navigate intersectionality specifically at a PWI.
