Each year, the Tulane Reading Project features a Keynote Lecture by either the book’s author or another scholar who is an expert on the themes presented in the book.
In 2017, Kimberlé Crenshaw delivered a lecture titled The Intersectional Paradigm: Race and Gender in Work, Life and Politics. Kimberlé Crenshaw, Professor of Law at UCLA and Columbia Law School, is a leading authority in the area of Civil Rights, Black feminist legal theory, and race, racism and the law. Her work has been foundational in two fields of study that have come to be known by terms that she coined: Critical Race Theory and Intersectionality.
