Intersectionality Research: Resisting the Tendency to Disconnect, Dilute, and Depoliticize

Psychological science has been slow to incorporate intersectionality as a concept and as a framework for conducting research. This limits not only the potential for intersectionality theory, but also limits the potential impact of the research claiming to use it. In this talk, I review intersectional theory and praxis, examine resistance to fully incorporating intersectionality, and highlight how research must shift to be truly intersectional. Finally, I will issue a call to scholars to integrate intersectionality theory and praxis and to resist the tendency to dilute and depoliticize intersectionality theory and disconnect from its social justice framework.
