A conversation with Christina Carney

Writing from the Intersections is a Humanities Research Center research cluster with the goal to provide space for faculty and students to explore the potentials of intersectionality as an intellectual tool in reading and writing. 

Christina Carney is an assistant professor in Gender and Women Studies at the University of Missouri. From her bio: "Carney's thinking is guided by a strong commitment to advancing the intersectional and interdisciplinary study of race, sexuality, gender, ethnicity, and culture through research, teaching, and service. Her areas of research specialization include black feminisms, black sexualities, queer of color critique, US West studies, and critical ethnography. Broadly, her research centers on the relationship between racialized gender and sexual difference and the construction of nation and region."

After a presentation from Professor Carney, we will have a discussion on intersectionality in research.
