Intersecting Inequalities – Cutting across Disciplines? Launch event of the Equality and Social Justice Research Group

May 25, 2011 - 14:00 - 17:00
Nador u. 11
Popper Room
Event type: 
Event audience: 

Research on inequalities is largely compartmentalized along the lines of different inequalities. Important work on inequality is done on gender, on ethnicity, class, or sexuality to mention only a few. Yet they rarely communicate.   The focus of this workshop is one evident point where these different areas of equality work have ideas that may be mutually beneficial: the topic of intersecting inequalities.

Presenters in the event will discuss intersecting inequalities coming from different disciplinary backgrounds: sociology, law, economics and political science.

The workshop is meant to serve as the launch event of the Equality and Social Justice Research Group of the CEU. The last half hour will be devoted to planning activities of the group.
