Lecture on Toni Morrison by Prof. Koenen

05. May 19:00 - 21:00

On Thursday, 5. May, 7pm, Professor Koenen will give a public talk on Toni Morrison at the Frauenkultur e.V., Windscheidstrasse 51, 04277 Leipzig.

Toni Morrison ist bisher die einzige Afro-Amerikanerin, der der Nobelpreis für Literatur verliehen wurde. In ihren Werken stehen schwarze Frauen - die durch Geschlecht und Rasse benachteiligt sind - im Mittelpunkt, vor allem mit der Thematik: Wie lassen sich Mutterschaft und Freiheit miteinander verbinden? Diese Frage wird im historischen Kontext verständlich: Mutterschaft galt als probates Mittel, um Sklavinnen an der Flucht zu hindern.
