Situating Her: Why Women Wrote Architecture 1700-1900
The ERC-funded project WoWA (Women Writing Architecture 1700-1900, ETH Zurich) is organising a colloquium with talks by Hilary Fraser (London), Brigitte Sölch (Heidelberg), Sol Pérez-Martínez (Zurich) and Matthew Lloyd Roberts (Cambridge). Talks will revolve around knowledge making both through travel and in the academy as well as the social and political conditions of architectural experience.
Jointly, the organizers situate women writing architecture in the 18th and 19th centuries. The colloqium explores where she wrote architecture, how she assumed a position of rhetorical authority, and why she wrote on and around the subject. In turn, we situate ourselves as her readers, reading with her and with each other, to find new ways of writing situated histories.
Speakers: Hilary Fraser, Brigitte Sölch, Sol Pérez-Martínez, Matthew Lloyd Roberts
Respondents: Mari Hvattum, Maarten Delbeke, Hannah le Roux
Date: Friday, 30 September 2022
Location: Siemens Auditorium (HIT E51)
Time: 14.00-18.00 CEST
