A 2017 Choice Outstanding Academic Title Intersectionality intervenes in the field of intersectionality studies: the integrative examination of the effects of racial, gendered, and class power on people's lives. While "intersectionality" circulates as a buzzword, Anna Carastathis joins other critical voices to urge a more careful reading. Challenging the narratives of arrival that surround it, Carastathis argues that intersectionality is a horizon, illuminating ways of thinking that have yet to be realized; consequently, calls to "go beyond" intersectionality are premature. A provisional interpretation of intersectionality can disorient habits of essentialism, categorial purity, and prototypicality and overcome dynamics of segregation and subordination in political movements. Through a close reading of critical race theorist Kimberle Williams Crenshaw's germinal texts, published more than twenty-five years ago, Carastathis urges analytic clarity, contextual rigor, and a politicized, historicized understanding of this widely traveling concept. Intersectionality's roots in social justice movements and critical intellectual projects-specifically Black feminism-must be retraced and synthesized with a decolonial analysis so its radical potential to actualize coalitions can be enacted.

    Anna Carastathis, Myrto Tsilimpounidi

    Since 2015, the 'refugee crisis' is possibly the most photographed humanitarian crisis in history. Photographs taken, for instance, in Lesvos, Greece, and Bodrum, Turkey, were instrumental in generating waves of public support for, and populist op...

Recensioner i media

"Anna Carastathis's careful and sustained engagement with Kimberle Crenshaw's work is uniquely illuminating and helpful."-Zenzele Isoke, author of Urban Black Women and the Politics of Resistance -- Zenzele Isoke "Carastathis's citational practices and the subsequent conversations she generates are a vital intervention in this current moment in academia. For both novices and experts in black feminist theories, this book is a crucial review of the literature for all academics at any stage of their career, especially those scholars naming their work as 'intersectional.'"-R. Aliah Ajamoughli, Journal of Folklore Research -- R. Aliah Ajamoughli * Journal of Folklore Research * "Better theory is what Carastathis wants, and that implies for her a more fundamental critique of naturalized and essentialized groups and a 'profoundly destabilizing, productively disorienting, provisional concept that disaggregates false unities, undermines false universalisms, and unsettles false entitlements.'"-Myra Marx Ferree, Contemporary Sociology -- Myra Marx Ferree * Contemporary Sociology * "Anna Carastathis confronts an enduring obstacle to taking up intersectionality's potential: she illustrates how an ongoing, monist fragmentation of identities, communities, politics, and perceptions buttresses power hierarchies and reinforces exclusion by design."-Vivian M. May, Hypatia: A Journal of Feminist Philosophy -- Vivian M. May * Hypatia: A Journal of Feminist Philosophy * "Intersectionality follows a clear theoretical arc and stages multiple interventions throughout, making it a resource for one well versed in the field or encountering it for the first time."-Desiree Valentine, Critical Philosophy of Race -- Desiree Valentine * Critical Philosophy of Race * "This is, perhaps, Carastathis's greatest insight: she urges us to think about intersectionality as a 'profoundly destabilizing, productively disorienting, provisional concept' whose work remains to be done. In this account, intersectionality refers to our desire to keep dreaming of a more just social world."-Jennifer C. Nash, American Quarterly * American Quarterly *
