Living Intersectionality in Academia: Emerging Scholars

This is a past event.

This session features emerging scholars who inhabit marginalized identity positions, including scholars with non-normative genders and sexualities, racial and ethnic minorities, and immigrants and international students. Join us to understand the ways in which marginalized identities fundamentally shape the academic experience and explore how othering works within universities and in Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Studies (SEEES). While emphasizing the inherent intersectionality of identity positions, this session introduces the broad matrix of ways in which emerging scholars in SEEES navigate their particular locations as underrepresented subjects.

MODERATOR:
Emily Couch, PEN America

PRESENTERS:
Kellan Baker, Whitman-Walker Institute
Nadja Greku, Central European University
Christy Monet, University of Chicago
Raushan Zhandayeva, George Washington University

REGISTER IN ADVANCE: https://www.ucis.pitt.edu/crees/intersectionality-in-focus-spring-2022

This session is part of the series "Intersectionality in Focus: From Critical Pedagogies to Research Practice, and Public Engagement in Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Studies." Class, ethnicity and race, dis/ability, gender and sexuality, and other identity markers interweave to produce inequality differently in Eastern Europe and Eurasia than in the Americas or Western Europe. Yet, it is these very differences that provide a rich ground for intellectual conversations in our field.
