“Intersectionality and the Socialist Temptation” offers an explanation of the phenomenon of intersectionality. The lecture will highlight intersectionality’s virtues and limitations. Ultimately, however, Dr. Corey argues that intersectionality is dangerously divisive because it separates and “fragments” Americans into ever-smaller social groups with distinct and opposed ideological interests. The idea of identifying as a "socialist" in 2020 represents not so much an economic theory that one has adopted, but rather yet another category of identity.
A free livestream of this lecture will be available to view @ 12 noon Eastern on September 17 for those who cannot join in person.
