Executive Director Crenshaw to speak at Brandeis University November 8th, 2012. Check out this Press Release just shared with AAPF:

The Heller School and Brandeis University will host a two-day symposium on intersectionality, a concept which describes the simultaneous intersections between aspects of social difference and identity (e.g., race/ethnicity, gender, class, etc.) and forms of systematic  oppression such as racism, sexism and classism at micro and macro levels.

On Thursday evening November 8, the reception begins at 6:30 p.m., followed by introductory remarks and the keynote address by Kimberlé Crenshaw, JD at 7:00 p.m., concluding the event at 8:30 p.m.

On Friday morning November 9, a welcome coffee will begin at 8:00 a.m. The program will consist of two sessions with Prof. Crenshaw, one focusing on research and policy and another on teaching. A comprehensive wrap-up session with Professor Crenshaw will provide participants with the opportunity to reflect upon and express ideas and thoughts on the role of intersectionality in the academy and through public engagement. Professor Crenshaw has authored some of the most important works on intersectionality, and is credited with being the founder of this perspective.

Registration is now open.
