Audio, Video, Photos, and Notes from the 4th Annual Critical Race Studies Symposium on the Intersection of Various Forms of Oppression and Resistance

On the 21th anniversary of Kimberlé Crenshaw's discussion of intersectionality theory, and the 20th anniversary of its popularisation due to the radically feminist work of Patricia Hill Collins, we have this excellent promotion of their political ideas and social analysis.


4th Annual CRS Symposium

We want to thank you for the overwhelming response to this event.  There are more than 400 registered participants, including more than 250 concurrent session panelists.  We are eager for robust engagement and a lively exchange of ideas. 

We have established a multimedia page that will allow you to follow the proceedings of this symposium online.  The symposium multimedia page will feature audio from the concurrent workshops and notes about all the sessions will be posted on the same day of the event.  After the symposium, we will post video recordings of the plenary sessions.

We have also uploaded some photos from the symposium.

Thank you,
CRS Symposium Planning Committee


 Since the publication of Kimberlé Crenshaw's formative articles - Demarginalizing the Intersection of Race & Sex (1989), and Mapping the Margins: Intersectionality, Identity Politics & Violence Against Women of Color (1994) - the concept of intersectionality has traversed more than a dozen academic disciplines and transnational and popular political discourse, generated multiple conferences, monographs, and anthologies, and animated hundreds of articles and essays. In the twenty years since Crenshaw introduced intersectionality, critiques of identity politics and multiculturalism and, more recently, claims of a "post-racial" era have blossomed. In 2010, we will re-visit the origins of intersectionality as a theoretical frame and site of legal interventions and consider its still unfolding potential for unmasking subordination and provoking social change.
