DRMC: Book Launch for Dr Keming Yang’s book ‘Analysing Intersectionality: A toolbox of methods'.

Wednesday 28th February 2024 , 4.30pm

During the past few decades, intersectionality has become an increasingly important issue as
well as a theoretical approach across many disciplines in the social sciences and humanities. However,
methodological developments for empirical research have been much slower and less established in
comparison with theoretical discussions. This book aims to bridge the gap between intersectionality as a
theory and an empirical research practice. It demonstrates how existing methods could help researchers
uncover new insights while analysing the intersectional effects of multiple factors on experiences of
disenfranchisement. It firstly provides a critical examination of long standing theories and methodologies
in intersectionality research. Then it expands existing qualitative approaches by explaining the potential
benefits and issues in analytical techniques such as qualitative comparative analysis, interaction terms in
generalized linear regression models, multilevel models, mediation and moderation, and mixed methods
designs. With real world research examples, further readings, and reflective questions, it will equip the
reader with the methodological tools to understand and analyse intersectionality in specific social
settings. In this event, Dr Yang will share his motivations for producing this book, explain the meaning of
his ‘generic’ approach, highlight the key points, and answer questions from the audience.

Location: The Business School, Lecture Theatre BUSC452,
Durham University, Mill Hill Lane, DH1 3LB

The launch will be followed by a Q&A session and nibbles & drinks in The Business Lounge, Room MHL418.
