The Intersectionality, Research, and Action International Summer School (IRAISS) will be held on the 12-15 of July 2022 in Krakow, Poland. 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.

How do we approach the learning dynamics in the Summer School?

This dynamic institute is purposed to explore and build knowledge on intersectional research, theory, and practice. The IRAISS seeks to convene interested scholars, activists, and other professionals who seek to grapple with questions and issues of intersectional identity.
