In 1989 Kimberlé Crenshaw coined the term intersectionality to center black women’s experiences of “compounded” subordination at the nexus of race and sex discrimination.1 In the thirty years since, intersectionality has become a primary framework in women’s studies and a key methodology through which historians seek to account for the development of gendered racial capitalism.2 During that time, Crenshaw’s own analysis has shifted to better account for the significance of chronological age and life stage.
In collaboration with Caribbean International Resource Network, Matthew Chin coordinated the Digital Collection Launch of the Jamaica Gaily News (1977-1984), the publication of the anglophone Caribbean's first self-proclaimed gay activist organization, the Gay Freedom Movement in Jamaica. The event was sponsored by WGS, the Carter G. Woodson Institute for African and African American Studies and the Center for Global Inquiry and Innovation.
