Intersections of Gender is one of the first three newly-minted University of Alberta Signature Areas of Research and Teaching. As a Signature Area, we will contribute to making the University of Alberta an internationally recognized leader in intersectional, gender-themed research that advances innovation and collaboration across disciplines, deepens equity and inclusion, and responds to global challenges.
Intersections of Gender starts from the premise that research strengths at the intersections of gender (including race, class, Indigeneity, disability, language, immigration status, and many more vectors of identity) are found across all fields and corners of the University of Alberta. Recognizing and developing these strengths stands to benefit individual researchers, community partners, collaborative teams, and the University as a whole.
Dr. Sheena Wilson (PI: Just Powers) will be a part of the Intersectional Research Showcase from 3:00-5:00.
