Situating Intersectionality brings together political academics and scholars who employ the analytical lens of intersectionality to articulate specific ways in which political institutions, policies, and political engagement can define, marginalize, and (dis)empower those they seek to serve. The authors in this collection identify and address two key concerns: How can intersectionality help us articulate, listen to, and understand diverse experiences of politics and policy outcomes? Secondly, what does this teach us about political strategizing and the possibility of political solidarity? Situating Intersectionality is an international collection giving voice to scholars whose empirical research spans Wales, Turkey, Chile, Canada, Haiti, Uruguay, England, and the American Midwest. The breadth and significance of this collection will appeal to political scientists engaged in intersectionality, students of new social movements, and international politics scholars.
