The “Audre Lorde-BUA-Guest Professorship for Intersectional Diversity Studies” is intended to shape Berlin as a research hub on a par with the reality of urban society. The educational scientist and gender researcher Prof. Dr. Maisha M. Auma is the first researcher to accept the guest professorship. She bundles and updates research approaches that deal with unevenly distributed social power, privilege structures, and barriers to participation.
