Project description

This research analyses racial power dynamics in feminist activism and gendered power dynamics in ethnocultural activism through an intersectional perspective (1970-2010). By conducting empirical research, it places the case-study of Dutch-speaking Belgium in the supranational debate on intersectionality. The analysis is done through a critical discourse analysis using both archival and oral sources.
