The Journal of Underrepresented &amp; Minority Progress (JUMP) is a refereed interdisciplinary publication (Print ISSN 2574-3465 &amp; Online ISSN 2574-3481) dedicated to the educational, economic, and social progress of minority and underrepresented communities around the world. It is an interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed, international, open-access journal published by STAR Scholars Network and is indexed on SCOPUS, one of the major indexing databases for peer-reviewed literature.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The current cultural climates of several industrialized nations reveal the ongoing struggles to shift cultural norms pertaining to gender, sexuality, race relations, and political economies (Inglehart, 2018). The COVID-19 pandemic also increased socioeconomic disparity and disproportionately affected economically disadvantaged groups (Flack et al., 2020; Khamijahani et al., 2021; Paul et al., 2021). The concept of intersectionality, which emphasizes the mutually constitutive nature of the racial, gendered, class, and sexual inequalities, has the potential to recognize and explain otherwise hidden forms of inequality (Hankivsky, 2022). Thus, “intersectionality” as both a theory and a method continues to evolve. This special issue, “Intersectionality: From Theory to Practice,” aims to deepen understanding of how intersectional perspectives are used in policy and practice. The volume seeks to bring together research on identities, experiences, and voices in the social, cultural, and political contexts of developed industrial nations. It will explore the efforts and limitations of using intersectional approaches to recognize and address the intersecting forms of marginalization that individuals and communities confront.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">This special issue aims to provide a platform for researchers and practitioners to present new findings and breakthroughs in intersectionality theory and practice. We invite paper submissions in three main categories: intersectionality as a theoretical concept, intersectional research as critical practice, and intersectional experience and underrepresented voices. Areas of interest for this special journal issue include, but are not limited to, the following topics:</span></p> <ul> <li style="font-weight: 400;" aria-level="1"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Intersectionality and Social Institutions</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;" aria-level="1"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Social Inequality and Stratification</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;" aria-level="1"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Marginalized Groups/Identities</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;" aria-level="1"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Representation of Marginalized Groups in Public Policy </span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;" aria-level="1"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Theoretical Perspectives</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;" aria-level="1"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Methodologies/Epistemologies </span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;" aria-level="1"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Pedagogy</span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;" aria-level="1"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Socialization </span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;" aria-level="1"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Gender Politics </span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;" aria-level="1"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Stereotypes and Bias </span></li> <li style="font-weight: 400;" aria-level="1"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Identity on Everyday Experiences </span></li> </ul> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">JUMP seeks to provide a venue for meaningful, purposeful, and actionable scholarship and invites articles, dialogues, and further remarks in accordance with its editorial policy (see</span></p> <p><strong>Submission Guidelines </strong></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">An email to the guest editor with the paper’s title, authors, and abstract will serve as your “intent to submit” notification.
