Living Intersectionality in Academia: Emerging Scholars

Live Video Stream
Event Status
Registration Required

This session features emerging scholars who inhabit marginalized identity positions, including scholars with non-normative genders and sexualities, racial and ethnic minorities, and immigrants and international students. Join us to understand the ways in which marginalized identities fundamentally shape the academic experience and explore how othering works within universities and in Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Studies (SEEES). While emphasizing the inherent intersectionality of identity positions, this session introduces the broad matrix of ways in which emerging scholars in SEEES navigate their particular locations as underrepresented subjects.

This session is part of the series "Intersectionality in Focus: From Critical Pedagogies to Research Practice, and Public Engagement in Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Studies." Class, ethnicity and race, dis/ability, 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.
