About this Event

Intersectionality and Climate justice: Towards an Emancipatory Climate Research Agenda

Background

Intersectionality is concerned with the presence of and dynamics between different social categories of difference (gender, race, class, sexuality, ability, etc.), and with how they affect an individual’s relationship to power. Scholars across a number of disciplines have begun to use intersectionality for analyzing climate change issues, but the theoretical and methodological links between intersectionality and climate justice have not been explored in comparable detail. The focus of both climate justice and intersectionality on challenging and renegotiating individual and systemic inequality and oppression provides exciting opportunities for collaboration and knowledge exchange in the areas of both research and practice.

Aim

This international online event will bring together critical scholars and practitioners interested in climate justice and intersectionality with the aim of exploring common threads between the two concepts, developing key research needs and directions, exchanging learning and teaching experiences, and creating research collaboration capacity.

Speakers

  • Dr Michael Mikulewicz, Glasgow Caledonian University
  • Dr Farhana Sultana, Syracuse University
  • Dr Martina Caretta, West Virginia University
