ISC at SC State sponsors events that encourage scholarship and discussion related to intersectionality, a framework with the goal of understanding how aspects of individual identity (which can include but are not limited to race, class, gender, sexuality, disability, and religion) intersect to construct different degrees of power and powerlessness.
