Intersectionality in Focus: Queer Studies
October 22, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
From Critical Pedagogies to Research Practice and Public Engagement in Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Studies
The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed and exacerbated pre-existing institutional, structural, and systemic discrimination and inequality in societies across the world. Furthermore, continued campaigns against gender and LGBTQ equity in Eastern Europe and Eurasia, racism in the United States, and the social protest movements that rose in response to such exclusionary projects have reinforced calls for intersectional approaches in Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Studies (SEEES). Class, ethnicity and race, disability, gender and sexuality, and other identity markers interweave to produce inequality differently in Eastern Europe and Eurasia than in the Americas or Western Europe. Yet, it is these very differences that provide a rich ground for intellectual conversations in our field.
UW-Madison faculty member Dr. S.A. Karpukhin (she/her) will be one of the conference presenters on October 8th.
