Torsten Lange speaks on Implementing Gender Parity, as part of the weeklong workshop and seminar series Toolkit for Today: Activisms. Lange lectures at the Institute for History and Theory of Architecture (gta) and is a member of the Parity Board at the ETH Zurich, which was formed to achieve and monitor gender parity at all levels of teaching and administration at the Department of Architecture.
Toolkit for Today: Activisms, interrogates the different forms that engaged practice can take for scholars of architecture. But what counts as activism? How can architectural research be mobilized in the service of society?
From 9 to 13 July, we are hosting one researcher every evening to engage, through their work, these questions and others about the social production of space, decolonized pedagogy, redensified housing, gender parity, and racial politics in architecture.
Toolkit for Today is our annual, weeklong series of seminars, workshops, and public events that invites scholars to open their toolboxes and share their methods with the participants of our Doctoral Students Program.
