RSS02.D4 Doing intersectional quantitative research

Intersectionality studies draw attention to the interrelatedness of inequalities or power hierarchies along social dimensions, such as gender, race, class, sexuality, religion, able-bodiedness, and it is often associated with qualitative research. However, as questions about the social meaning and roots of inequalities are at the core of quantitative social and health sciences, intersectionality has much to offer to quantitative research. Still many who are interested in conducting it are struggling with the question: How to do intersectional quantitative research?  That is exactly what we will focus on in this one-week crash course.

Building on an emerging consensus, this course makes clear why adding an interaction term to your regression model is neither sufficient, nor necessary for doing intersectionality research. Having that said, we do focus on which statistical tools are suitable for doing intersectional research and how they can be applied.
