On the Peripheries of the Subaltern: Privilege, Marginalization, and Intersectional Identities
Friday, March 5, 12:00 pm to 1:30 pm EST
Grounded in theoretical frameworks of “otherness,” such as Spivak’s “subaltern” and Canagarajah’s “periphery,” this workshop will explore the intersection of multiple identities which are simultaneously held by every individual.
After participants engage in an exploration of these intersectional identities, they will then analyze how biases—like colorism, sexism, ableism, homophobia, and xenophobia—can still be internalized within communities which are also marginalized.
This workshop is designed for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. For faculty and staff, please contact RackhamEvents@umich.edu to see if we can accommodate your attendance.
