CfP: Figurations of gender in current architectural discourse, 7th Forum Research in Architecture. Munich, 18–20 November 2020

Call for Papers: Figurations of gender in current architectural discourse, 7th Forum Research in Architecture. Munich, 18–20 November 2020

Taking inspiration from, and informed by, the recent upsurge in activities and innovative scholarship in the field of architecture and gender – both within and outside the academy –, the Netzwerk Architekturwissenschaft in collaboration with TU Munich will hold its 7th Forum Research in Architecture on the theme “Figurations of gender in current architectural discourse”.
The call for papers (German only) seeks contributions from scholars, educators, practitioners, curators, writers across our discipline (and beyond) in the following three areas: (1) Historiography – other narratives; (2) Bodies and genders in technological and design discourses; (3) ‚Room at the top?’ – institutional analyses and politics.
The conference will be held in German, though we are open to contributions by non-German-speaking individuals who are active in German-speaking areas of Europe, providing their command of German allows participation in discussions (papers may be delivered in English). A key objective of the event is to build alliances and a network among people working in institutions in the architecture/built environment sector in Austria, Germany and Switzerland, since debates here remain marginalized compared to other geographies.
The full call for papers is available here.
Abstract submission deadline: 15 July 2020.
