Audre Lorde-Visiting Professorship for Intersectional Diversity Studies, Wintersemester 2021/2022

In the lecture series “Intersectional Diversity Studies. Critical Diversity and Gender Studies in the 21st Century", launched in the winter term of 2021/22, Maisha M. Auma critically examined diversity, inclusion and intersectionality in research institutions from a transnational perspective. In addition, she offered a LabMeeting/Colloquium, which assessed how marginalized groups with little social power participate in the decolonization of white and Western-centered knowledge structures, and how skills in critical diversity enable new didactic framework conditions for teaching at university and high school level. The event is organized in cooperation with the Berlin Center for Global Engagement (BCGE).

(BuKoF), the internal and public workshops will focus on three topics: a critical examination of the term diversity, a critical examination and mapping of diversity surveys as well as surveys that have been conducted to analyze experiences of discrimination at German polytechnics and universities, and diversity and teacher's trainings in the Berlin area, in cooperation with DiGENet's subject didactics Network. The four public sessions have been convened to discuss and further develop the work process, including goals and preliminary findings, together with the interested (expert) public.
