WGSS Brown Bag Seminar

The Missing Memphis School

The Missing Memphis School, Dr. Ivy Ken, Associate Professor of Sociology

The WGSS "Gender and Sexuality Brown Bag Seminar" showcases GW faculty and student research on issues concerning gender, race and sexuality. In this seminar, Dr. Ivy Ken, Associate Professor of Sociology, will discuss the collaborative scholarship on intersectionality developed by the University of Memphis. This was an important precursor to Kimberlé Crenshaw's foundational essays. Dr. Ken's critical inquiry, informed by the sociology of knowledge, will explore how the humanities and social sciences have been disciplined in ways that have consequences for understanding the dynamics of intersectionality.
