Angela Davis Guest Professorship

The Angela Davis Guest Professorship for International Gender and Diversity Studies serves to promote international and interdisciplinary cooperation in the field of gender and diversity.

Prof Angela Davis is regarded as a pioneer in the global race-class-gender debate and as a pioneer of critical discourse within gender and diversity studies. Her perspective on overlapping forms of inequality based on gender, ethnicity and class has become part of social science theorising as triple oppression - or currently as the intersectionality approach.

Angela Davis was the first holder of the visiting professorship at the Cornelia Goethe Centre in 2013. Following its successful launch, the visiting professorship is filled at regular intervals by an internationally renowned researcher.
