The Intersectionality Lab (I-Lab) examines how inclusion, diversity, belonging, equity, and access intersect with teaching and research to enhance the liberal arts and industry-specific disciplines.
Events, activities, and services at New York University to build community using an intersectionality lens.
"There is no thing as a single-issue struggle because we do not live single-issue lives." - Audre Lorde
Intersectionality, Interdisciplinarity, Inclusivity, Inquiry, Innovation, Intercultural, International, Impact, Industry, Ideas, and the pronoun "I." How can I be part of the solution to systemic inequalities? The SPS I-Lab or Intersectionality Lab is a virtual space where NYU faculty from all units gather to interrogate how theories about anti-racism and social justice intersect with practices of pedagogy and applied research in both the liberal arts and industry-specific disciplines. Our work focuses on Intersectionality (as coined by Kimberlé Crenshaw in 1989) as a lens of inquiry, as an intellectual sensibility, and as a way to influence industry-specific policies and practices. By encouraging the application of theory to practice, the I-Lab will be a unique space at SPS (and beyond) where scholarship and industry come together with an explicit focus on understanding and reducing systemic inequalities.
