Details: This 'Reading Event' Symposium was centred on the work of Prof Patricia Hill Collins, a social theorist whose research and scholarship has extended the application of 'intersectionality' to examine issues of race, gender, social class, sexuality and/or nation, and who has won many prizes for her pioneering work in race, gender, culture and society. This ‘reading event’ was envisioned as part of a series organised by Dr Aideen Quilty of UCD, to reflect the dialogic nature of learning emphasised by Prof Collins, and to provide a space for discussion of intersectional lines along which race, class, and gender meet.: An Anthology, 6th ed. (2007), edited with Margaret Andersen, is widely used in undergraduate classrooms in over 200 colleges and universities. Black Sexual Politics: African Americans, Gender, and the New Racism (Routledge, 2004). Her other books include Fighting Words: Black Women and the Search for Justice (University of Minnesota Press, 1998); and From Black Power to Hip Hop: Racism, Nationalism, and Feminism (Temple University Press in press for 2005).
