|Introducing Intersectionality Course
CLPR has designed a course for law and social science students titled “Introducing Intersectionality.” As of last month, CLPR has taught this course at five law colleges/universities. The course seeks to challenge our understanding of discrimination, transforming it from the treatment of individuals as single-identity persons into one that takes into account the multi-faceted experience of oppressed identities at various intersections, say of caste, gender, sexual orientation & disability.
Taught by Jayna Kothari and Vikramadtiya Sahai, the course employs academic & legal writings, commentaries, personal narratives, and cultural texts to understand how intersectionality affects our study of the law, advocacy, and activism. Link to the course curriculum & reading
