Situating Her: Why Women Wrote Architecture 1700-1900

Date: Friday, 30 September 2022
Location: Siemens Auditorium (HIT E51)

Time: 14.00-18.00

In this workshop and colloquium, we situate women writing architecture in the 18th and 19th centuries. We explore 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. 

After a private reading workshop in the morning, in which the WoWA team and guests will perform a close reading (and listening) of a historical text authored by a woman, the afternoon will open to the public with a colloquium presenting three speakers and two respondents. Talks revolve around knowledge making both through travel and in the academy as well as the social and political conditions of architectural experience.
