intersectionality

The interconnected nature of social categorizations such as race, class, and gender as they apply to a given individual or group, regarded as creating overlapping and interdependent systems of discrimination or disadvantage. —Oxford Living Dictionaries

The Cologne Centre for eHumanities (CCeH) is organising a two-day symposium and a one-day workshop at the University of Cologne. The event aims at exploring intersectional approaches to textual scholarship and Digital Humanities theories, practices, and tools.

A session will be dedicated to Italian and German women writers during the Renaissance. This  specific case study is part of a project funded by NetEx (Network and Exchange funding programme, University of Cologne).

If you are presenting a paper, attending or taking part of our workshop, please register before November 5!
