CRFR International Conference: Intersectionality, Families and Relationships

University of Edinburgh
22 – 24 June 2020

Call for Papers now open

We are pleased to announce the call for papers for our 6th International conference on Intersectionality, Families and Relationships. Leading social theorist and activist Patricia Hill Collins will open the conference, providing the platform for an exciting and vibrant dialogue on how intersectionality, past and present, can deepen our understandings of families and relationships and the power relations within.

We welcome papers reporting empirical research findings, methodological approaches to researching intersectionality, as well as those more theoretical in orientation. We are especially keen to include the experiences and perspectives of those working outside academia, in policy and practice settings, and would welcome papers from professionals working in these contexts.
Contributions may include, but are not limited to, the role of intersectionality in families and/or relationships in the following areas:

  • RACE & ETHNICITY
  • SEXUALITY & GENDER
  • SOCIAL CLASS AND INEQUALITIES
  • INTERSECTIONAL CHILDHOODS & YOUTHS
  • SPATIAL MOBILITIES, FAMILIES & COMMUNITY
  • DISABILITY STUDIES
  • HEALTH & ILLNESS
  • OLDER PEOPLE
  • ENVIRONMENT, SUSTAINABILITY & CLIMATE CHANGE
  • INTERSECTIONALITY, PRACTICE & PROFESSIONAL PERSPECTIVE
  • DIGITAL DOMAINS, INTERSECTIONALITY, FAMILIES & RELATIONSHIPS
