2019 (English)In: Researching Risk and Uncertainty: Methodologies, Methods and Research Strategies / [ed] Anna Olofsson & Jens Zinn, Cham: Palgrave Macmillan, 2019, 1, p. 265-286Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

This chapter combines sociological risk research with feminist theory and explorative methodology. This provides a more comprehensive account of the complexity of intersecting social forces at work when social inequalities are (re)produced, as risk is entangled with power assemblages such as gender, class and ethnicity, which together produce positions of privilege and subordination. Using multiple correspondence analysis (MCA) to visualise risk and uncertainty in everyday life, an empirical example demonstrates that risk perceptions are not linear, that they vary by type of risk and that intersectional assemblages capture a level of complexity beyond single categories such as gender, ethnicity or class. © The Authors 2019
