About Intersectionality and the City

Intersectionality and the City began life as a one-day interdisciplinary workshop in 2019, co-convened by Dr Kennetta Hammond Perry and Dr Ben Whitham (see below). In 2020 we launched an edited blog as space to continue and develop the conversations started at that conference. We welcome submissions to the blog.
