5 Intersectionality Resources for Growth and Exploration

Interested in learning more about intersectionality? Aiming for personal growth? Trying to bring perspective to your faith community, school, or workplace?

The goal of this post is to provide you with a list of 5 reputable sources that will help you take your learning journey to the next level. Although you’ll see some cross-listed resources on the master lists I’ve linked out to, I also tried to ensure that each one contained enough diversity of links/references to make it worth its own mention.

Without further ado, check out these phenomenal resources!

  1. Kimberlé Crenshaw Instructors’ Guide: Free Resources on Intersectionality, Critical Race Theory across Disciplines. In this PDF packet, you’ll learn about Crenshaw, and get a list of scholarly articles, books, and videos clips that shed more light on what intersectionality is.
  2. The George Washington University Office for Diversity, Equity, and Community Engagement offers a Resources on Intersectionality page filled with work from a variety of scholars, including Patricia Hill Collins, Kimberle Crenshaw, and Jennifer C. Nash.
  3. Salisbury University offers a Library Research Guide on intersectionality. It’s helpfully separated out into sections, including YouTube, Activitites, Newspapers & Magazines, Books, and Lesson Plans & Toolkits.
  4. Noelle Whitman’s list of resources (as published on Forbes) first contains resources categorized as being Theory-Based. After that section, you’ll find resources connected to Social Movements, including feminism, LGTBQ, anti-racism, climate change, immigration, sexual assault/harassment, and disability justice.
  5. The National Center for Women & Information Technology has a great resource page that has an intersectionality timeline, defines keywords, and offers unique resources that focus on the role of intersectionality within the STEM field.

With I Am Intersectionality, I hope to provide thought-provoking resources that will help us understand more about our own personal intersections, and what those intersections mean in the historical and social moment we are living in today.
