College of Arts & Sciences Diversity Lecture Series April 7

By Mary Siegle

Tiffany Florvil, assistant professor at the University of New Mexico, will present "May Ayim, the Afro-German Movement, and her Transnational Activism" at the College of Arts & Sciences Diversity Lecture Series at 5:30 p.m. April 7 in 231 Waters Hall.

May Ayim was a prominent Afro-German poet who engaged in social activism by performing across Europe, Africa and the U.S., employing her literary work to obtain social visibility and equality for herself and other people of color. With the support of Audre Lorde, Ayim and others established the Afro-German movement of the 1980s and 1990s.

Florvil is a historian of the modern and late modern period in Europe, especially social movements, gender and sexuality, emotions and the African diaspora.

The lecture is co-sponsored by the departments of modern languages, English, women's studies and history.
