About the course:
The course deals with the development of theories and theoretical discussion of the concept of intersectionality and its use in order to understand the interaction between power orders based on categorisations such as based on the concepts of gender, class, disability, age, ethnicity and sexuality. Furthermore, the course deals with what an intersectional approach means to theory development and methodological developments in research in these areas. Both the relation to theories of categorisation and the relation to general sociological theories are highlighted. Different methodological approaches for intersectional analysis are demonstrated. Theoretical and methodological problems in intersectional approaches are highlighted based on empirical studies and current international scientific articles.
