Race Matters in Intersectional Feminisms

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskrift/Konferencebidrag i tidsskrift /Bidrag til avisTidsskriftartikelForskningpeer review

In this article, we ask “how does race matter when working with intersectional feminism in a postcolonial Nordic context?” We take our cue from feminist and postcolonial scholars who have pointed out that minoritisation and majoritisation processes in the Nordic area are deeply enmeshed in continuous circulations of racialised economies. In doing so, we also take up the challenge posed by accusations mainly from US-based intersectionality scholars that European feminism white washes intersectionality.
Our point of departure is first that racialisation processes must be situated on the backdrop of a shared global history, but, and equally important, they are localized and constituted through different intersectional bendings in specific socio/temporal spaces. And, second, that the (different kinds of) differences associated with conceptualisations of race and racialisation ‘worlds’ intersectionality differently; they open up and close down possible engagements.
