Intersectionality: Politics - Identities - Cultures Research Group

An academic collective exploring diversity in intersectional and interdisciplinary ways 

iPIC research group is concerned with the investigation of cultures, identities and politics from non-traditional perspectives and with an emphasis on positionality. We are aware that power operates across multiple axes and use this knowledge to make a difference in the ways we conduct our research. Our research aims at contributing to discourses of identity politics and to reflect on overlapping systems of oppression and power and engage with multiple axes of identity and subject positions. In our work, we reflect upon difference and how it can be used as a uniting tool across disciplines, in order to prioritise difference over sameness and to identify boundaries as mutable and traversable.
