Public Lecture "Traveling Intersectionality"

Three decades after the term intersectionality was coined, it has become the most prominent feminist intervention, traveling across disciplines and national boundaries, and across the oft-described theory/practice boundary. This is a talk that attempts to trace and assess that travel, to think about the meanings of intersectionality in a moment when the word is used by scholars, activists, artists, and practitioners on all sides of political conversations for myriad reasons. More than anything, I aspire to think about how this unprecedent travel makes us – feminists who feel an attachment to intersectionality – feel, and what those feelings might teach us about political desire.
