Research Impact and Knowledge Exchange Competition 2020


Ashlee Christoffersen

University of Edinburgh

Ashlee is based in the School of Social and Political Science at the University of Edinburgh, and her PhD thesis is entitled ‘The politics of intersectional practice’.

Ashlee’s PhD draws on her practitioner background to explore how equality third sector organisations, which have been predominantly focused around single issues/identities, are conceptualising and operationalising the politically transformative frame of ‘intersectionality’: the understanding that structures of inequality are mutually constituting and thus cannot be addressed separately.

Her submission for the Research Impact and Knowledge Exchange Prize relates to a conference that she organised for equality third sector practitioners, public sector practitioners, policy makers, and academics.
