Audre Lorde Lecture by Aishah Shahidah Simmons

Featured lecture of Audre Lorde Week

featuring Aishah Shahidah Simmons

Date: Tuesday, February 4, 2014
Time: 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
Building: Rogers Memorial Chapel
Location: uptown campus

Aishah Shahidah Simmons is an award-winning African-American feminist lesbian independent documentary filmmaker, television and radio producer, published writer, international lecturer, and activist.  At Temple University she teaches under/graduate courses on the work of Audre Lorde. Sponsored by Office for Gender and Sexual Diversity (OGSD), Office of Multicultural Affairs (OMA), and Center for Engaged Teaching and Learning (CELT)

Tulane University’s Audre Lorde Week is an opportunity for students, faculty, staff, and community members to come together to “develop tools for using human difference as a springboard for creative change.”  Like the work of Lorde herself, the experiences planned for the week combine critical analysis and love, lyricism and research, as well as struggle and collaboration (1) to address the ways in which inequity, bias, discrimination, alienation, and violence undermine our individual, collective and planetary health and (2) to develop holistic analyses and strategies for fueling well-being, justice, and positive social change. Central to the week’s events will be a consideration of how students, researchers, faculty, staff, and communities can create meaningful, reciprocal, accountable, and thriving relationships within the context of racism, sexism, heteronormativity, economic disparity, homophobia, transphobia, xenophobia, and town/gown divides.  Admission to all events is free and open to the public!  

Sponsored by: Center for Engaged Learning and Teaching (CELT)Gender & Sexuality Studies, Multicultural Affairs Office, Social Entrepreneurship Initiatives as well as Office for Gender and Sexual Diversity

Admission: Free
Attendance: Open to the public
Open to: Alumni, Faculty, Graduate students, Parents, Prospective undergrads, Staff, Undergraduates, Visitors
