InterdepenDenken: Wie Positionierung und Intersektionalität forschend gestalten?


w_orten&meer, wissen_bewegen, Berlin 2015

Anthology on intersectionality, co-edited with the working group AK ForschungsHandeln, an international gathering of emerging and established scholars. I coined the book title InterdepenDenken, to offer a new research paradigm in the German context. The anthology presents European and non-Western perspectives on intersectional research methodologies, and explores the intersection of gender, race, class, and ableism.
