Intersectionality as a sensitizing concept. Dealing with classifications  in social and life sciences

 

Instead of merely summarising the effects of one, two or three oppressive categories, the concept of intersectionality, coined in the 1990s, emphasizes the interwoven nature of categories such as gender, class, race or sexuality and how they can mutually strengthen and weaken each other. Against this background, we will introduce the historical and theoretical background of this concept, discuss methodological challenges, and present some empirical findings. In the second part, Andrea zur Nieden from the research group SoSciBio will critically discuss their findings how human diversity is operationalised in the life sciences along the categories race/ethnicity/migration background in different national contexts (US and Germany).
