    Intersectional Pedagogy explores best practices for effective teaching and learning about intersections of identity as informed by intersectional theory. Formatted in three easy-to-follow sections, this collection explores the pedagogy of intersectionality to address lived experiences that result from privileged and oppressed identities. After an initial overview of intersectional foundations and theory, the collection offers classroom strategies and approaches for teaching and learning about intersectionality and social justice. With contributions from scholars in education, psychology, sociology and women’s studies, Intersectional Pedagogy include a range of disciplinary perspectives and evidence-based pedagogy.

    "Intersectional Pedagogy is a marvelous resource for anyone aiming to integrate intersectionality into their teaching. Faculty and graduate student teachers will find many ideas about how to talk about intersectionality in a variety of course settings and as it arises in the context of various social identities, as well as an amazing array of teaching resources, and detailed strategies about how to pursue classroom discussions and activities that live up to the complexity and depth of the theorizing about intersectionality. So many chapters inspire and encourage pedagogical experimentation. I know I will return to the volume again and again for fresh inspiration." --Abigail J. Stewart, Sandra Schwartz Tangri Distinguished University Professor of Psychology and Women's Studies at the University of Michigan
