- In 1984, the poet, literary critic, and feminist Audre Lorde was a visiting professor
at the Free University of Berlin, in the Department of Literature at the Central Institute of North America
John F. Kennedy Institute for North American Studies. Dr.
Dagmar Schultz, who invited Audre Lorde to Berlin,
has donated the materials that form the basis of her documentary, Audre
Lorde - The Berlin Years 1984 -1992. After the completion of filming Dagmar Schultz
donated the materials to the University Archives. Thanks to funding from Dr. Schultz, the inventory could
be developed in a timely manner and is thus now
to the public.
