The notion of intersectionality, and the complex social phenomena to which it refers, go under many names and labels, including multiple oppressions, multiple social divisions, multiculturalism(s), multiple differences, ‘diversity’, postcolonialisms, hybridities. The concept of intersectionality has a rich feminist history (see, for example, Crenshaw 1989, 1991, McCall 2005). It has been used in many different ways – between relatively fixed social categories, in the making of such categories, in their mutual constitution, in transcending categories. Intersectionality can be understood, albeit very differently, within the full range of epistemologies, feminist or otherwise. Of special interest is in what times, places and situations do intersectionalities appear most evident.
