CCA Doctoral Students Program
The call for applications is now closed.
Primary research is a critical component of all doctoral theses. The CCA offers several summer residencies—ranging from four to six weeks—to support PhD students in pursuing archival research based on our collection. While candidates apply with a clearly defined research topic that will benefit from exposure to the CCA Collection, we also see the doctoral program as an opportunity to introduce new voices into the research we do here. As part of the residency the CCA organizes a one-week seminar—a topical “Toolkit for Today”—which provides scholars with new concepts, tools, and methods for their own research while also expanding on our current projects. Recent topics have included “The Digital,” “Keywords for the Environment,” “Oral History,” and “Activisms.”
Doctoral candidates enrolled in doctoral programs in history and theory of architecture, planning, humanities, communications and social sciences at Canadian universities, regardless of citizenship must apply directly on our web portal.
We also welcome PhD candidates from within our network of affiliated American and international doctoral programs in the history and theory of architecture. Participating American universities include Columbia University, New York; Cornell University, Ithaca; Harvard University GSD, Cambridge; Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge; University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia; Princeton University, Princeton; IIT, Chicago; and UCLA, Los Angeles. International partners include the Architectural Association, London, UK; The Bartlett School of Architecture, London, UK; Universidade de Coimbra, Portugal; TU Delft, Netherlands; ETH Zurich, Switzerland; and the University of Sydney, Australia.
Since 2018, the CCA offers residencies for up to three PhD candidates enrolled in doctoral programs in the history and theory of architecture at non-affiliated universities.
Residencies must take place from mid- June to mid-August 2019.
PhD candidates from Canadian universities and those from non-affiliated universities worldwide must apply directly to the CCA. Applicants from affiliated universities must be nominated by their respective home institution. Applications and nominations occur in late winter and the final selection is made in early spring by the CCA and the coordinators of the respective doctoral programs. Research projects should relate either to the CCA Collection (archival holdings, prints and drawings, photography, library, artifacts and ephemera) or to our main research themes (e.g. global histories and postcolonial perspectives, environmental histories, the digital, photography, and history/historiography).
Applicants enrolled at Canadian universities and those at non-affiliated universities will be notified of the selection process directly by the CCA in April 2019, and candidates from within our network of affiliated universities will be notified by their respective program coordinators in April 2019.
