PSYC 325 - Intersectional Psychology


What is intersectionality theory? How can psychologists integrate intersectionality theory into the field to promote social justice? There is burgeoning interest in intersectionality in psychology, which presents psychologists with a unique opportunity to focus on interlocking systems of oppression and structural-level issues. This course delves into intersectionality theory through its Black feminist scholar-activist origins and provides a lens for psychologists to understand how to promote social justice and equity in the field. Drawing on interdisciplinary scholarship, students will be encouraged to develop a critical understanding of how intersections of race, class, gender, and sexual oppression can be used to explore important issues in psychology.
