1. Seminar 4: Intersectional childhoods: Practical applications across Practice, Policy and Research


    from SUII Seminar Series 2013-14 Added 141 0 0

    Children and young people’s identities and inequalities are complex: a growing field of interdisciplinary research in the UK and beyond recognises that categories such as ethnicity, ‘race’, gender, social class, disability, sexuality and age intersect in intricate ways, shaping children’s social identities and impacting on their everyday life experiences. The way in which such interlinking identities generate particular inequalities has been framed in theory and research through the concept of ‘intersectionality’. Intersectional perspectives recognise the diversity of different groups and examine how certain groups are silenced from and marginalised by dominant political debates.
