Welcome to the website of the Doctoral College for Intersectionality Studies!
With funds from the Hans Böckler Foundation, the interdisciplinary "Doctoral College for Intersectionality Studies" (PK 053) is planned to be set up at the University of Bayreuth by December 1st, 2022 in cooperation with the Friedrich Alexander University Erlangen-Nuremberg and the Philipps University of Marburg.
Who we are
Building on decades of academic and political work by women of color, we would like to contribute to further establishing intersectionality studies. As the first doctoral college of its kind in Europe, it will decisively focus its work on intersectionality in order to research intersectional social inequalities and transform them through interventions. Set up in this way, the doctoral college will establish intersectionality studies as an academic discipline.
