The IRAISS is designed as a focused and innovative opportunity to engage novice and experienced scholars and activists in critical discourse, research, and epistemologies on intersectional research, theory, and practice. The IRAISS will host leading international scholars on intersectionality research.
The IRAISS will be held on the 12-15 of July 2022 in the beautiful southern city of Krakow, Poland. Krakow is the second largest and one of the oldest cities in Poland. Situated on the Vistula River in Lesser Poland Voivodeship, the city dates to the seventh löcentury. Kraków has traditionally been one of the leading centers of Polish academic, economic, intellectual, cultural, and artistic life. Krakow’s Old Town that features Wawel Royal Castle was declared one of the most beautiful cities and the first UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is also the home of the oldest university in Poland.
The IRAISS will be housed at the Jagiellonian University [Uniwersytet Jagielloński (UJ)]. Founded in 1364, UJ is the oldest and most prestigious university in Poland. The campus is located in the center of Krakow and has a population of 35,000 students studying in 166 fields.
