CIRSDe, the Research Centre for Women's and Gender Studies, will organise the conference “Beyond Genders”. Intersectionality between theory and practice. Interdisciplinary gazes” on Friday, 24 November and Saturday, 25 November at Luigi Einaudi Campus.

This concept was born within the Anglo-American legal discourse and coined by the American jurist Kimberlé Crenshaw to highlight how the law is often inadequate to address the discrimination based on several factors and how even inadequate the anti-discrimination policies are to interactions, such as those in the situation of black women. The concept of intersectionality underlines the existence of social hierarchies and compartmentalization by describing oppression and discrimination caused by belonging to multiple groups and/or categories such as sex, gender, class, ethnicity, religion, age, disability, or sexual orientation.

Nowadays, it is transversally used as theoretical orientation in gender and women’s studies to analyse how the indicators of difference intertwine with majority and dominant structures. Over the years, its scope has extended beyond the abovementioned disciplines, including the social, pedagogical, psychological, medical, or linguistic field, to name a few. An increasing number of people working in the academy and interested in inequalities, social injustices and discrimination is aware of the need to overcome binarism and dichotomies that simplify the complexity of multiple belongings. Together with the multidisciplinary branching, the concept of intersectionality became the object of different divergences. It is the object of heated debates and epistemological and ideological controversies between those who believe in its ideological nature that cannot be limited to a mere methodological approach, and those who claim the need of an analysis based on a class struggle, crucial for any social injustice.
Moreover, while in some disciplines, such as gender studies, the concept of intersectionality is well known both from a theoretical and practical point of view, in others it is a nebulous concept searching for a well-defined identity, especially in its practical effects. Given the plural nature of the current debate and the diagonal nature of its application, the conference intends to be an opportunity for dialogue between the different disciplines to explore the “state-of-the-art” of research and considerations on this topic. What are the perspectives through which it has been analysed for years? What are its applications? What makes its implementation complex and what are the pitfalls in its actual applicability? Why do some
fields of study seem to dialogue more fluently with this concept and others to be resistant?
Which are the most popular research methods, and why? How was the concept of intersectionality analysed and discussed among the various disciplines? How can an
intersectional perspective be developed in global contexts that deal with a past of colonialism and oppression?

 4 th -year secondary-school students, again this year, can take the entrance exam for the five-year master’s degree courses in Medicine and Surgery, Dentistry and Prosthetics in Italian and Veterinary Medicine.

Therefore, 4 th -year secondary-school candidates can attempt the exam 4 times: twice in 2023 and twice in 2024.

  As regards the other TOLC exams, i.e., the online test by CISIA consortium, you can participate through any exam delivery method even if you are still a 4 th -year secondary-school student. It must be considered that, according to the Rules TOLC , a TOLC exam is valid at least in the year in which you take it. Therefore, students will have to check the validity period of the exam in the notice of admission of the relevant degree course.

 Politecnico di Torino gives students who are in their final year of secondary school the opportunity to take the entrance exam for a maximum of 3 times and only once per exam session. These are three different exams, i.e., the TIL-I test (to access to all Engineering degree courses of Politecnico), TIL-D test (to access to Design and Communication degree courses) and TIL-P (to access to Territorial, Urban, Environmental and Landscape Planning degree course).

 Free online courses of start@unito – available here  – will be useful both to choose the course and prepare for the entrance exam.
 CONSERVATORY: preparatory courses are very useful to access three-year degree courses without any fail in the core subjects, info and regulation

The launch of the PhD in “expert of customised projects to carry out the UN convention on the rights of persons with disabilities (CRPD)” is scheduled for March 2024 and has been set up by the Philosophy and
Education Sciences department of the University of Turin.

It is the first university PhD in Italy aimed at educating experts in customised projects in support of people with disabilities, which observes the UN convention on the rights of persons with disabilities
(CRPD). The new study path, 60 credits (CFUs) and lasting 18 months, has 35 positions and is financed by the association Time2, which has been founded by Antonella and Manuela Lavazza. The PhD will cost € 2,700, € 2,000 of which are guaranteed by the association.

The PhD was launched after the approval of the law 227/21, entitled “Delegation of powers to the government in the matter of disability”, which promises a significant turn towards the conquest of the full citizenship by people with disabilities. By means of this law, Italy is preparing itself to launch a deep reform of services addressed to people with disabilities, which aims to successfully overcome the welfare culture, conservation and institutionalisation and to allow people to exercise the rights described in the UN convention on the rights of persons with disabilities (CRPD).
