Changing Migrant Communities: Contemporary Transnational and Intersectional Identities

7 September 2018


What is the role and perception of migrants in contemporary Melbourne and how does it stand up to the realities around intersectionality?

Intersectionality can be considered as the interconnected nature of social categorisations such as race, class, and gender as they apply to a given individual or group, regarded as creating overlapping and interdependent systems of discrimination or disadvantage.
