You know that old adage, “The best dissertation is a done dissertation?” It holds true for intersectionality dissertations too, which can be complex and messy, but are still best when done.
Writing the intersectional dissertation can be challenging and lonely. A major reason for this is that often the intersectionality expert on your committee is… well… you! Moreover, there are few formal opportunities to learn about the complexities of the intersectional dissertation, things like intersectional models and designs, and methodological complexities, particularly if you’re doing a quantitative or mixed methods dissertation. This training is designed to help you navigate the twists and turns of the intersectionality dissertation with tips and strategies to support you wherever you are in the process: conceptualizing your proposal, designing your study, writing the proposal, thinking about how to analyze and interpret your data, or just finishing the thing!
Graduate students, particularly doctoral students at any stage of the intersectional dissertation process.
