Audre Lorde Visiting Professorship

The Diversity and Gender Equality Network (DiGENet) of the Berlin University Alliance launched a visiting professorship on diversity studies in the summer semester of 2021. The “Audre Lorde-BUA-VisitingProfessorship for Intersectional Diversity Studies” is named after the Caribbean-American writer, library scientist, and English professor Audre Lorde. She worked as a visiting professor at Freie Universität Berlin and between 1984 and 1992 was repeatedly in Berlin for longer stays.

The Audre Lorde visiting professorship is intended to shape contemporary, future-oriented diversity studies for and from a hyperdiverse, post-colonial metropolis. Its aim is to make this research visible – locally as well as transnationally – and to open it up to a broader debate. The visiting professorship is further intended to diversely shape Berlin as a research hub on par with the reality of urban society.

... The call for the Audre Lorde Visiting Professorship 2025 will be published here shortly!
