    THE HISTORICAL INTERIOR PhD courseRoyal Danish Academy – Architecture. Design and Conservation, Copenhagen, Denmark

    Application deadline: 1st October 2022via https://katalog.<wbr />

    Coordinator(s): Kirsten Marie Raahauge

    Other lecturers: Alison J Clarke, Peter Thule Kristensen, Ane Pilegaard and Nuno Grancho

    Course descriptionThe course is anchored around a four-day seminar with a broad, introductory curriculum of interior design theory led by scholars from The Royal Danish Academy. As an integral part of the four-day seminar, Professor Alison J. Clarke will host a two-day workshop of text readings, presentations and feedback to papers written by the course participants.As Alison J. Clarke writes, the seminar will examine how “once discrete disciplinary stances can merge to challenge the interior as a static and innate container, re-casting it as an active, evolving entity that has shifted from an analogue space to a dispersed, virtualized cultural form. Based on extensive fieldwork experience around the study of the interior, particularly in the context of the class politics of aesthetics and social aspiration, the seminar traces the shifting terrain of the interior as a vital and compelling object of study within contemporary social science, architectural and design studies.” By engaging with the manifold aspects of interior and material culture, the four-day seminar will provide a platform to discuss the notions of interior and to reflect together through the course participants own research.

    Teachers and Participants
    The four-day seminar will be led by Professor Alison J. Clarke and scholars from the Royal Danish Academy. Clarke will lead a two-day workshop focusing on the papers given by the participants, furthermore, she will discuss the texts of the compendium put together by her for this workshop. She will also give a public lecture. We are excited to welcome Alison J. Clarke, who is a design historian (RCA/V&A) and a trained social anthropologist (UCL) at the University of Applied Arts Vienna. Her approach combines historical and anthropological methodology. Clarke’s work is at the forefront of design anthropology research and is integral to debates regarding material culture, design and consumption studies. Architect Professor and studio leader Peter Thule Kristensen, anthropologist and Professor WSD Kirsten Marie Raahauge,  assistant professor Ane Pilegaard and post doc Nuno Grancho  from The Royal Danish Academy will lead, moderate and organize the seminars. This course is organized by The Royal  Danish Academy, Institute of Architecture and Design. It is intended for PhD-students at all project stages.
