Abstract

Intersectionality is one of the key concepts in contemporary feminist thought. It draws attention to the hierarchically organized, changing relationships between gender and other identity categories and social classifications such as class, ethnicity, race, sexuality, age, and health. Inspired by Kimberlé Crenshaw’s conception of intersectionality working on three levels – the structural, the political, and the representational – the article discusses Finnish feminist research that has used intersectionality as an approach. The examples have been chosen from the fields of social sciences, politics, and cultural studies. In an effort to develop intersectionality as an interdisciplinary methodology, the article suggests that performative intersectionality is a way to bring separate research traditions together. It emphasises the complexity, variety, and
ambivalence of intersecting identity categories and socio-cultural classifications. Performative understanding of intersectionality as a methodology can open up new interpretations of gender and other hierarchical differences, but also possibilities in reorganizing them.
