Architecture as Public Concern Fellowship 2023

The inaugural Architecture as Public Concern Fellowship asks CCA Research Network members: who is the work for? And what does the work do? Architectural historical scholarship is increasingly being held accountable to a range of publics, with a particular emphasis on community-level concerns, spaces, and forms of engagement that can foreground questions of race- and land-based reparation. The Architecture as Public Concern Fellowship is open to any member of the network pursuing a research project that can address this orientation and that takes into account questions of accountability. This is a provocation to revisit the wide range of scholarship conducted through the CCA, and engage with its blind spots and margins outside the frame of its formal research fellowship programs.

Network members can match the fellowship funds ($3,500) with current projects that draw parallels between research on the built environment and its points of contact with practices of community accountability, these can be in any format (exhibitions, books, reports, etc.), address any time period or geography, and be situated across a number of institutional and/or para-institutional contexts. The aim is to be expansive and inclusive in defining how communities can be invited into the process of architectural research that is of public concern and urgent relevance. Projects could address question such as: who counts? How does access operate? How might concerns of varied publics (differently gendered, racialized, or subject to varied submerged histories) be attended to, and in what way might alternative publics be engaged?


Application packages, from individual and/teams, should include:

• A project proposal (max 500 words) that directly addresses questions of community accountability, and a list of partners (if any)

• CVs for all project team members (only one member of the team needs to be a member of the CCA Research Network)

Candidates are invited to submit an application online through the CCA application portal.

Deadline: 11 July 2023 at midnight (HNE)

The 2023 Selection Committee includes the CCA Research Network Steering Committee (Arièle Dionne-Krosnick, Georgios Eftaxiopoulos, Nokubekezela Mchnu, Sara Stevens et Huda Tayob) and Rafico Ruiz, Associate Director, Research, CCA.
