The main goal of this common core seminar is not only to return to the genealogy of intersectionality but also to get into the way in which international and disciplinary movements modify its meaning and issues.

The concept will be studied in an interdisciplinary way (sociology, literature, law, history, etc.) and with the variety of territorial anchor strategies.
