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.
