Analysing Intersectionality

Analysing Intersectionality
A Toolbox of Methods

November 2023 | 200 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd

How can we analyse the intersectional effects of multiple factors on experiences of disenfranchisement? This book equips you with the methodological tools to uncover new insights.

First providing a critical examination of long-standing methodologies in intersectionality research, it then shines a spotlight on analytical techniques such as qualitative comparative analysis, multilevel models, mediation and moderation, and mixed methods designs.

With chapter objectives, real-world research examples, further reading and reflective questions, it will equip you with the methodological tools to understand intersectionality in specific social settings.

The book:

·       Bridges the gap between intersectionality as a theory and an empirical research practice.

·       Extends existing approaches to analysing intersectionality in a traditionally qualitative field.

·       Inspires creativity and celebrates a variety of effective methods for studying intersectionality.

Innovative and thought-provoking, this book is ideal for any student or researcher looking to harness the power of empirical evidence to explore inequality and injustice.

This book gives a good example to students about embedding a theoretical lens into their research from the point of design, and also helps researchers to think about and identify intersectional factors impacting on their research participants.
