"I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious" – Albert Einstein

Lydia Maria Taylor is responsible for Public Relations at English Post. She was born in the United States, but grew up in Nuremberg and has Afro-American, Hungarian, German, and Polish roots – all of which contribute to her open-minded personality and refusal to be defined by any single nationality or identity. She has a background in English literature and Sociology and is completing her Doctoral Thesis about gender roles in the Moral Weeklies of early eighteenth-century London. She has also taught at the Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nuremberg. Lydia currently works as a Cultural and Event Manager as well as a press and public relations officer for the Historische Felsengänge Nürnberg, and has been involved in several volunteer projects such as the Nuremberg International Human Rights Film Festival (NIHRFF), as well as the exhibition “Homestory Deutschland” – a collective self-portrait of black people in Germany that ran until 2013. Along with meeting friends and bringing like-minded people together, in her free time she enjoys attending exhibitions, concerts, practicing yoga, hiking in the fränkischen Schweiz, and riding her bike.
