Within feminist theory and a wide range of social sciences, intersectionality has been a relevant focus of research. It has been argued that intersectionality allowed an analytic shift from considering gender, race, class, sexuality and other categories as separate and added to each other to considering them as interconnected. This has led most aut...

Intersectionality is a complex concept to deal with when doing research but also when teaching the interrelationships between space and social relations. Here we present “Relief Maps” as a visual tool for teaching intersectionality and its spatial dimension in higher education courses. “Relief Maps” are a model developed for research and applied in...

Scholars have argued for the heuristic utility of categories as tentative and provisional modes of distinction and tools for understanding complexity, so that analyses interrogate the power dynamics they produce in ways that accommodate both their mutual influence and their irreducibility (Carbado and Harris, 2019;Gunnarson, 2017). ...
... Recent agendas in geographical research include 'to advance how intersectionality is theorized, applied in research and used in practice' (Hopkins 2019: 942), and 'to work collaboratively with practitioners to do so' (Hopkins, 2019: 944; also see Bauer, 2014;Hopkins and Pain, 2007). Advancements also include intersectionality as method, given critiques of a lack of methodological direction (Baylina Ferré and Rodó De Zárate, 2016;see Coddington, 2017;Hopkins, 2018;Johnson, 2020;Raghuram, 2019;Valentine, 2007;Yuval-Davies, 2006). ...
