Critical Race Studies Symposium

Mar 11 @ 10:30 am-Mar 13 @ 8:00 pm

4th Annual Critical Race Studies Symposium: Intersectionality March 11- 13, 2010 (schedule available at: http://crsonline.law.ucla.edu/CRS_Program/Annual_Symposium/03.11.10) Since the publication of Kimberlé Crenshaw’s formative articles – Demarginalizing the Intersection of Race & Sex (1989), and Mapping the Margins: Intersectionality, Identity Politics & Violence Against Women of Color (1994) – the concept of intersectionality has traversed more than a dozen academic disciplines and transnational and popular political discourse, generated multiple conferences, monographs, and anthologies, and animated hundreds of articles and essays. In the twenty years since Crenshaw introduced intersectionality, critiques of identity politics and multiculturalism and, more recently, claims of a “post-racial” era have blossomed. In 2010, we will re-visit the origins of intersectionality as a theoretical frame and site of legal interventions and consider its still unfolding potential for unmasking subordination and provoking social change.
