Are you a health researcher interested in making your research diversity-responsive? Do you enjoy interaction, reflection, collaboration and challenging discussions? Or do you just want to make this world a better place?
Then sign up for our 3-EC online training ‘Intersectionality & I’, on October 14 and November 4, 2022!
- What is intersectionality, and how can I use it in my own research?
- What are ‘intersecting oppressions’, why do they matter for health, and what do power and privilege have to do with it?
The course consists of: two online group meetings and preparatory assignments (1 ects), a comprehensive syllabus (1 ects), and an essay (1 ects).
In this entry-level training on intersectionality in (public) health research, we cover the basic theoretical and methodological foundations of intersectionality theory. We discuss why intersectionality is a useful framework to analyze health inequalities and inequities, address common research pitfalls and solutions, and discover how intersectionality theory could be integrated in your own research activities. The training is suitable for both qualitative and quantitative researchers who would like to learn more about the basics of intersectionality theory and its application to health research. You do not need to have experience with intersectionality to enter the course.
This training is particularly suited for junior researchers or PhD students. Our main focus will be public health, but the topics covered are relevant for other health-related fields.
