Multiple identities, multiple discrimination, intersectionality

Enfin, a good occasion to sit, read and cross analysis, narratives and wording on multiple identities, multiple discrimination, intersectionality, power and privilege.

Please note, the following list doesn’t have any pretention to be comprehensive. It ‘s meant as an additional information resource database for the preparation of Space/ID Bologna, and we’re fully aware that references at the moment are online available resources in English and produced in the EU and US context. In the list below, there are also various critical points that have an interest in being discussed and that can raise deep questions.

Feel free to add other useful, and critical-thinking inspiring/provoking, resources.
