Who gets to be British? Gender and race at the borders of citizenship
Dr. Bridget Byrne
This paper will critically engage with the concepts of intersectionality and multiple identities. It will ask what are the gains and potential pitfalls in a language of intersectionality and multiple identities. Considering the production of whiteness, of citizens and non-citizens in Britain, the paper will explore how we can track the play of gender, race and class in relations of power around questions of citizenship. How can we trouble citizenship through an exploration of gendered and racialised exclusions?
