The Limits of the Intersectional Axiom -  A Conversation with Dr. Tommy J. Curry

The Limits of the Intersectional Axiom - A Conversation with Dr. Tommy J. Curry

Today we are delighted to have Dr. Tommy J. Curry on Vitamin D for the first time as we dedicate a show to discussing the analytical method of intersectionality. Anchoring our discussion is his article Black Sudies, Not Morality - Antiblack Racism, Neoliberal Cooptation, and the Challenges to Black Studies Under Intersectional Axioms and an upcoming event here in London in which he will present via video link. Dr. Curry speaks to the theoretical contributions by black women in the U.S prior to the articulation of intersectionality such as Joyce Ladner and Allison Edwards, and after, such as Athena Mutua and Oyèrónkẹ́ Oyěwùmí whilst pointing towards the decolonial conceptions brought forth by Sylvia Wynter and Maria Lugones on genre and gender which considered a much broader framework of eurocentric violence - both epistemic and material. We also touch on the susceptibility of the method to the contemporary neoliberal mandate and the shortcomings of black bourgeois politics proper.
