CFP : Superdiversity. A critical intersectional investigation

Publié le 27 juin 2017 par Institut du Genre

For a special issue of Tijdschrift voor Genderstudies, deadline 15 July 2017.

Reflecting upon different origins and uses of superdiversity and intersectionality guides us toward the following set of questions : are superdiversity and intersectionality theoretically incompatible, or can there be grounds for fruitful dialogue and collaboration ? Does superdiversity need to be gendered and politicised, and if so, what would such an intervention entail to exactly ? Could intersectionality benefit from some of the perspectives and methods of superdiversity, and vice versa ?

To find an answer to these provocative questions, the guest editors of this special issue would love to welcome article abstracts from both academic scholars and policy-makers who are invested in critically examining the theoretical roots of both paradigms. Contributions from those working in the fields – or on the transdisciplinary crossroads – of feminist and gender studies, queer theory, political science and philosophy, anthropology, sociology, transnational studies, and diversity and critical managerial studies are particularly welcome. We also encourage young scholars to send in an abstract, and would like to include columns based on lived experiences, political opinion-pieces, and policy-analysis essays that focus on practical applications (in Belgium and the Netherlands, but also in other contexts).
