Intersections is a graduate student discussion group that welcomes individuals who are interested in discussing the many ways race, gender, sexuality, capitalism, war, nationality and other social forces structure society, lives, and experiences. The group talks about how these forces play out in current events, popular culture, local and national politics, and in our own experiences as students and teachers at Brown and residents in Providence.

At each meeting, we talk about whatever issues are on our minds. Our meetings are loosely facilitated with rotating facilitators, and we strive to be consensus-based in our decision making and to prioritize relating to each other in ways that are open, supportive, respectful, and free of academic jargon. We eat snacks, and when everyone’s comfortable with it, sometimes we drink wine.

The group is open to all graduate students and medical students.

This site is a digital space to share links to articles, images, and other ephemera with the rest of the group so that we can build an archive of topics, ideas and resources to refer to.
