Prof. Dev: Intersectionality in Focus Series (University of Pittsburgh)

Event Dates: October 8, 15, 22, and 29, 2021

The Center for Russian, East European, and Eurasian Studies at the University of Pittsburgh is pleased to announce the series titled “Intersectionality in Focus: From Critical Pedagogies to Research Practice and Public Engagement in Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Studies.”

The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed and exacerbated pre-existing institutional, structural, and systemic discrimination and inequality in societies across the world. Furthermore, continued campaigns against gender and LGBTQ equity in Eastern Europe and Eurasia, racism in the United States, and the social protest movements that arose in response to such exclusionary projects have reinforced calls for intersectional approaches in Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Studies (SEEES). 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.

Recordings for all sessions will be made available at a later date on our program page: https://www.ucis.pitt.edu/crees/intersectionality-in-focus.
