Critical Vocabularies: Intersectionality

January 31, 2023 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

Join us for a workshop to unpack key languages that we use in our writing, research, and dialogues of academia starting off with a really foundational one: Intersectionality! We are thrilled to co-host this workshop with Julia Lane from the Student Learning Commons. The event will take place on Tuesday January 31 from 11:30-1 in WAC Bennet Library room 7301.

Register here!

Through a combination of open discussion and engagement with relevant research and writing scenarios, we will consider how the concept of intersectionality can be useful and meaningful in our work as student scholars.

Learning Objectives: 


  • Develop a critical understanding of the concept of intersectionality
  • Engage in open, collaborative discussion with peers about intersectional research and writing
  • Develop your own sense of how intersectionality can be a meaningful and useful part of scholarly work

  • this will be an in person event and will not be recorded

  • this event will be happening in the WAC Bennett Library at SFU Burnaby campus. we will be wearing masks in this space for the well-being of the community during this time of increased COVID transmission. we will have masks available.
  • the location of the workshop is accessible via elevator.
  • the chairs in the room are “office type” chairs with a mesh back and padded seat.
  • there are gender-neutral washrooms down the hall from the room we are using.
