Roundtable on Intersectionality at Locus Online

First off, some of you might be wondering what “intersectionality” means. From Wikipedia: “The theory suggests — and seeks to examine how — various biological, social and cultural categories such as gender, race, class, ability, and other axes of identity interact on multiple and often simultaneous levels, contributing to systematic social inequality.” And that’s a solid enough definition for me.

Locus Online currently has a roundtable on intersectionality, on how it affects what we read and write, featuring authors and editors such as N K Jemisin, Theodora Goss, Ellen Datlow, and Terry Bisson, as well as many others. Pretty nice discussion of the topic, I think.
