Job: Architecture and mediation: publications, exhibitions, archives. Oslo, The Oslo School of Architecture and Design

The Oslo Centre for Critical Architectural Studies (OCCAS) at AHO, solicits applicants with strong and original project ideas within humanities-based architectural research. In particular, the School looks for projects that link to OCCAS’ work on interpretation, criticism, and mediation.
OCCAS has recently focused on the relationship between architecture and print culture in modern Europe, 1700 to the present. OCCAS is particularly interested in the way architectural debate in public and professional media (exhibitions, newspapers, journals, magazines, catalogues, guidebooks, advertising, etc.) impacts architectural thinking, production, and preservation, and how architecture becomes a site for discussion, negotiation and contestation of larger cultural issues.
Investigation may also comprise publication and exhibition history, historiography, and architectural criticism, addressing issues such as the techniques, formatting and circulation of architectural representation and the relationship between buildings and their mediation, be it on paper or in galleries. OCCAS asks for PhD proposals that explore aspects of these issues, drawing on a well-defined historical material from the above-mentioned period. The proposals must have clear research questions and a defined archival material. For more information about OCCAS’ work in this area and for accessing the full call please follow this link.
To be considered for the position please upload the following:

  • A cover letter (Maximum 2 A4 pages)
  • A Curriculum Vitae (Maximum 4 A4 pages. The cv may provide links to additional online resource demonstrating your capabilities or other relevant sources)
  • A project proposal (Max 1500 words, illustrated)
  • An example of your academic writing (3000-5000 words)
  • Copies of Masters Degree certificate(s)

Please apply directly at www.jobbnorge.no
The application deadline is 10 May 2020.
Enquiries about this position should be directed to Professor Mari Hvattum, mari.hvattum@aho.no
