Intersectional Conversations

admin - 30th August 2017

“Intersectional Conversations”, a special event hosted by the Faculty of Law on Thursday 28th September 2017.

This afternoon session offers a unique introduction to intersectionality theory and its relevance to our work within the Faculty. Intersectionality will be discussed through a range of perspectives, including through the lens of ethnicity, disability, gender, sexuality, and class.  The event will take place in the Gulbenkian Lecture Theatre from 13:00 to 17:00. A sandwich lunch will be served from 12:30, and a wine reception will be hosted from 17:00 onwards. Speakers include Dr Hillary Potter from the University of Colorado, and Professor Kalwant Bhopal, from the University of Birmingham. A full programme is outlined below.

Spaces are limited, so early booking is advised.

This is an excellent opportunity for those new to intersectionality to gain insight on this influential theory, and to discuss how the Faculty might build on these ideas moving forward.
