The aim of the PhD research project Conceptualizing intersectionality by Amund Rake Hoffart, was to explore the construction of intersectionality as a paradigm in feminist and gender research. By taking a process of academic paradigmatization as its central case, the project also engaged in broader conversations within feminist theory and the sociology of knowledge. The defence of the Ph.D. thesis Intersectional intersectionality? Interpretative politics in metacommentaries on intersectionality took place in 2021.
