Intersectional directions in working life research - a proposal

Abstract
A central challenge to gender studies during the last 15 years has been the expanding field of intersectionality.

By taking our point of departure in the work of feminist scholars Joan Acker, Miriam Glucksmann, and Chandra Talpade Mohanty, we argue that an intersectional perspective can expand as well as challenge working life research. But we also argue that working life research in many ways can contribute to the field of intersectional... (More)
