About the Conference

Critical Juncture, 2014The Graduate Institute of Liberal Arts, the Department of English, the Department of African American Studies, the Graduate Division of Religion, Science & Society, the Disability Studies Initiative, the Fox Center for Humanistic Inquiry, the Provost’s Office, and the Hightower Fund at Emory University present CRITICAL JUNCTURE: Exploring the intersections of race, gender and disability.

CRITICAL JUNCTURE is a conference that seeks to foster discourse on identity, difference and inequality from a variety of cross-disciplinary and interdisciplinary perspectives. This conference invites engaged participation of researchers, scholars, community artists, and organizers whose work focuses on the impact of the relationship between social identities and the contexts within which they form. In particular, we will explore the interstices of identity and inequality that bring people into contact with institutional and cultural power in particular social spaces (e.g. workplaces, ‘public’ spaces, state institutions, educational systems, local and global economies, and health systems).
