Upcoming Global Approaches Lectures

Global Approaches to Intersectionality is a collaborative, interdisciplinary research project sponsored by the Rock Ethics Institute’s Critical Philosophy of Race Initiative and the Africana Research Center. The project is designed to catalyze research into theories of race, gender, class, sexuality, and other intersections of identity in three sites: Rwanda, South Africa, and the United States.

This speaker series is designed to foster a sustained conversation with intellectuals in southern as well as northern contexts on themes at the intersection of class, race, sexuality, gender, and other vectors of identity in relation to Africa, especially South Africa. Topics include an investigation of the theoretical resources that best meet the challenges facing so-called “postcolonial” Africa, and how the theoretical resources developed from the African experience can enrich United States’ theorizing on race and other vectors of identity.
