Project Title: Architects, Designers, Mothers
This studentship, led by Professor Cat Rossi, is offered in conjunction with UCA’s School of Architecture and Design in Canterbury. While there is an increasing body of research on women's overlooked contribution to architecture and design, there is still a significant gap in the literature in terms of key issues that have affected women’s ability to study and pursue careers in architecture and design past and present, given their motherhood and caring roles. Domestic architecture is a research priority in the School.This studentship project invites candidates with research projects – pursued either by thesis or creative practice – that explores histories, theories, and practices around the relationship between architecture or design professionals, motherhood and care in the 20th and/or 21st centuries. The successful candidate will work in the School of Architecture and Design in Canterbury and undertake some teaching activity as part of the studentship.
