Swedish Research School in Architecture
The profiling of ResArc is made through thematically and pedagogically well-prepared series of courses, seminars and workshops. These activities welcome PhD students, supervisors, senior researchers and experts, in meetings that foster a wider and deeper development of competence.
PhD courses constitute a main activity in ResArc and participation in the course pro-gramme is the central conjoining mechanism of the research school. The ResArc courses assure a subject-specific range of contents related to architectural theory, history, materiality, socio-spatiality, design and practice.
Recurrent thematic courses (7,5 HEC each) are offered and arranged by ResArc. These courses are designed to meet and support temporary and conditional interests of research and are developed and run in close working relation with the strong research environments Making and Effect. The overall format of a thematic ResArc course includes a theoretical introduction (phase 1), an exercise where approaches and methods are tried (phase 2), and a public result such as an article, an intervention or exhibition (phase 3). At least one of these phases could include a situation-specific investigation.
Complementary courses can be designed on shorter notice and need not be recurrent. They may emerge in relation to specific interests stated by the students, or in order to catch an emerging interesting topic in the field. If several students have similar interests, special courses can be organized within the frame of ResArc.
Upcoming course: Tendencies in Architectural and Urban Research: Focusing on Everyday Life
The course provides opportunities for doctoral students to achieve an overview of trends, approaches and practices in contemporary architecture research. The course also provides a basic introduction to architecture theory, methodology and academic publication. We will discuss themes, theories and methods of research on everyday life.
Session 1: April 25-26
Session 2: June 13-14
Session 3: September 13
The course is held at School of Architecture, LTH, Lund University and KTH, Stockholm.
Confirmed guests: Prof. Albena Yaneva (Manchester University), Prof. Andrea Mubi Brighenti (University of Trento), PhD Jennifer Mack (KTH Stockholm), PhD Jesper Magnusson (Malmö University) PhD Kajsa Lawaczeck Körner and Ass. Prof. Eja Pedersen (Lund University).
Deadline for course registration is March 31st 2017. For more info, see the course description (pdf).
