The Institute for the History and Theory of Architecture (gta) was founded in 1967 as part of the Department of Architecture (D-ARCH). Find out more about the Institute under www.gta.arch.ethz.ch .
Applications are invited for a doctoral fellowship within the ERC-funded project ‘Women Writing Architecture: Female Experiences of the Built 1700-1900’ (WoWA), led by Dr Anne Hultzsch. The project examines how women perceived and described architecture and the city in the 18th and 19th centuries in Europe and Latin America.
Find out more about the project and the research group under www.hultzsch.arch.ethz.ch .
The doctoral fellow will work closely with both the PI and the Postdoc on the project, contribute to organising events and joint publications as well as building the project database, the WoWA Atlas, besides working on his/her own individual project focusing on German-speaking Europe. Candidates should propose an individual project which explores how female authors reflected on the nation building occurring in German architectural discourse of the period. When Johann Wolfgang von Goethe lauded the individual genius in the Gothic of Strasbourg Cathedral in 1773, this was also a call for German architecture to emancipate itself from French rationalism. How did women’s writing, be it in periodicals or cookbooks, reflect on this rising nationalism of the time, and its architectural manifestation of a national style?
Candidates will be supported with submitting papers to international conferences as well as begin to publish both jointly and independently. The project grant will support conference attendance and an extended stay at a relevant archive in Europe. The doctoral fellow will be part of the doctoral program of gta, and thus participate in the activities of the department, contributing to curricular and extra-curricular events.
We are seeking junior researchers with a background in the history of architecture, art or related fields, or architects and landscape architects with research experience. Suitable candidates hold a university diploma or master’s degree in a relevant subject and have begun to undertake independent research. We are particularly keen on hearing from candidates with experience in archival research who have excellent written and spoken communication skills (English and German) alongside an enthusiasm for meticulous research, close reading and feminist history.
