The End of Civil Rights in Kimberlé Crenshaw’s “Mapping the Margins”

The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 25

In this episode of the New Discourses Podcast, James Lindsay continues his abridged reading of Kimberlé Crenshaw’s famous (or infamous) paper, “Mapping the Margins,” which appeared in the Stanford Law Review in 1991. While not the birthplace of intersectionality, this paper is the first full-throated appeal for its application, not just in the world but also in the movements from which it was born: radical feminism and black liberationism.

In part 1 of this series, James read the introduction to the paper, wherein he claims the Woke One Ring was forged to form one model of systemic oppression to rule them all: intersectionality, by which all the radical and civil rights movements were ensnared and brought under the dominion of postmodern neo-Marxist thought. Here, in part 2, James reads through the conclusion of “Mapping the Margins” and illustrates exactly how Crenshaw’s ideas will achieve the complete subordination and redirection of all leftist, left-wing, and civil-rights thought.

This episode of the New Discourses podcast is the second part of a two-part series reading an abridged version of Crenshaw’s “Mapping the Margins.” You can find Part 1 here.
