Coalition Building Based on Socially Constructed Oppressed Identities Contributed by Robert Hess III
Within feminist, queer, and transgender theory there has been much debate and contention regarding the formation of multidisciplinary coalitions. This debate is due, in part, to the attempt to braid theoretical models with practice. While there is great value in theoretical discourses, in practice, these exchanges can create discord, which is counter-productive to the work of coalition building. It is possible that such theoretical discourses may be disconnected from the consciousness of the day-to-day practical tasks of coalition building.
