Salon Description:

Dr. Jasmine Abrams’s 2020 excellent article, “Considerations for Employing Intersectionality in Qualitative Health Research," in Social, Science and Medicine is required reading for anyone interested in conducting qualitative intersectionality research.  In the article’s introduction, Abrams asserts, “… in many qualitative health studies, the central tenets of intersectionality remain largely unacknowledged, and no guidelines exist to assist researchers with incorporating the theory into their work.” (p. 2).  She’s so right! In this salon, we’ll discuss the genesis of this article, her  intersectionality research on the invaluable breadcrumbs she laid to grow the methodological field of qualitative intersectionality health equity research, and the gaps that are just waiting for Intersectionality Research Salonistes to fill.  If you do or are interested in applying intersectionality to your qualitative health equity projects, this is the salon for you.  And speaking of filling gaps, we’ll also chat about Dr. Abram’s passion project —  Thrive Institute for Professional Development   —  a business to support the writing and professional development of professors,  most of them Black and Latina/o/x , by hosting writing retreats in beautiful sunny destinations every winter.

This field of Black girls’ and women’s health (BGWH) science is both transdisciplinary and interdisciplinary. As such, the contributors to this edited collection offer a unique lens to BGWH science, expanding our collective scientific worldviews. The contributing authors draw upon their ontological and epistemological knowledge to formulate pathways and inform methodologies for doing research and praxis to address BGWH. Each contributor draws upon these knowledges and offers the reader a way to better understand how their framing and writing can create change in the health of Black girls and women.
