New Visual Methods for Teaching Intersectionality from a Spatial Perspective in a Geography and Gender Course
Baylina Ferré, Mireia; Rodó de Zárate, Maria
Journal of Geography in Higher Education, v40 n4 p608-620 2016
Intersectionality is a complex concept to deal with when doing research but also when teaching the interrelationships between space and social relations. Here we present "Relief Maps" as a visual tool for teaching intersectionality and its spatial dimension in higher education courses. "Relief Maps" are a model developed for research and applied in a "Geography and Gender" course at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB) with the aim of promoting student reflection on the relationships between power structures, places and lived experiences, starting from their everyday lives.
