Rethinking Intersectionality in Social Gerontological Research: A Case Study

Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstractpeer-review


Since its conceptualisation by critical feminist Kimberlé Crenshaw, intersectionality as a theoretical and analytical approach has been used widely across academic fields. In social gerontology, academics have used intersectionality to examine how (old) age interacts with other minoritised identities like gender and culture. This presentation reflects on an intersectional approach through Imagining Ageing Futures, a study with multicultural LGBTQ+ people aged 50 and above.
