Event Details

 

This is a preliminary meeting to discuss creating a home for us to share our work on intersectionality and communication.

Intersectionality is a trending theory and method of research in the discipline because communication scholars are recognizing the danger in singling out identity categories as if they were exclusive, not housed within the single body, that one can easily pull apart, dissect, and entertain independently of the others.

Scholars who do intersectionality studies approach communication from a very specific researcher standpoint that embraces the multiplicity of identity without emphasizing certain facets of identity over others. There are also scholars whose work is intersectional without using the language. We encourage you to join us as well as well as we continue crafting what it means to be intersectional in the Communication discipline across methodologies and research interests.

Creating an intersectionality division would create a safe space for scholars to engage issues of race, class, gender, sexuality, geography, ability, and many other intersections in ways that are progressive, empowering, and praising of voice in an otherwise potentially hostile and silencing environment.

We hope you will join us in Albuquerque. If you cannot, but wish you to have your voice and thoughts incorporated in the beginning stages, please contact Amber Johnson at dramberjohnson@gmail.com to ensure your thoughts are included.

 After the meeting commences, we will create a listserv of participants, and continue the dialogue at NCA Orlando.
