Om emnet

Feminism has been a discipline in the architectural discourse since the 70s. In this course, we will be following the historical development of the discipline from the start and until today, when it is influenced by queer theory and gender-studies as well as by feminist theory.

The course is divided in two parts. The first part is focused on critical discourse analysis and its relevance for discussions on architecture. Through the study of  feminist and queer theory, traditional power-relations will be challenged, and ethical and political awareness increased. In the second part, the theoretical material is actualized within a creative and architectonic frame, through drawing-exercises based on a fictional text related to the course's topic.

The theoretical part of the syllabus will be taken from anthologies focusing on architecture and feminism / gender, and from architectural magazine's special issues on the topic. The fictional text we are going to study, will most probably be the novel Orlando (1928) by British author Virginia Woolf.
