Symposium “The Challenges of Intersectionality”

VENICE SYMPOSIUMS

The third event of the ERC project “DomEQUAL” is dedicated on intersectional approaches to difference and inclusion. We will have with us outstanding international and Italian scholars who will delve into the methodological, theoretical and political challenges that these approaches represent today. We will also critically explore the connections between debates on intersectionality and disability and queer studies
