2011 (English)In: Framing Intersectionality: Debates on a Multi-Faceted Concept in Gender Studies / [ed] Helma Lutz, Maria Teresa Herrera Vivar, Linda Supik, Farnham, Surrey: Ashgate , 2011, 207-221 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

The chapter puts focus on the concept of intersectionality, arguing that it is important always to contextualize and situate it. But it is also underlined how its capacities for rhizomatic flight and for teasing out tensions and conflicts between different strands of feminist theory and politics, might be used for posing new political questions and thinking through pressing theoretical issues. Referring to a couple of examples from the history of feminist theorizing, where political and theoretical struggles over intersections have come forcefully to the fore, it is suggested that moments such as these can be re-read as moments of becoming of a kind of in-depth theoretical and passionate political intersectional analysis.
