CRFR Conference | 22 – 24 JUNE 2020

Intersectionality, Families and Relationships


Due to high demand, the abstract submission date has been extended to 30 September 2019.

Edinburgh University is delighted to be hosting the Centre for Research and Families and Relationships International Conference 2020 between June 22nd – 24th.

The concept of ‘intersectionality’ is an increasingly widely used way in which researchers and others attempt to grapple with the ways in which intersecting systems of oppression (e.g. sexism, racism and others) affect people. 

The concept can be traced to the activism of black feminists in the USA who highlighted the different experiences of women of colour – affected as they were by the intersection of both racism and sexism.  

For our sixth international conference, we will explore how families and personal relationships are implicated in a range of intersections: both as systems through which oppression may circulate, and as sites of resistance and transformation. 

Leading social theorist and activist Patricia Hill Collins will open the conference, providing the platform for an exciting and vibrant dialogue on how intersectionality, past and present, can deepen our understandings of families and relationships and the power relations within.
