Higher Seminars in Architecture, Part 1

KTH Royal Institute of Technology

The aim of the course is to enable doctoral students enrolled at the School of Architecture to develop their skills in presenting, analysing and discussing academic papers and other research material. In addition to this, the seminar provides a forum for senior and/or guest researchers to present their work ideas, theories and methods between the different research areas represented at the school of Architecture, as well as to research in affiliated fields.

The course is structured on a series of seminars, approx. 10 in all, held during the academic year (autumn and spring). The main focus is on presentations of ongoing research by doctoral students (working papers, conference contributions, design studies or such) accompanied by prepared comments and followed by open discussions. Seminars may also include presentations by senior researchers and invited scholars speaking on a course-relevant theme. In support of the development of research method, the seminar format may occasionally be varied to allow for other activities and initiatives (such as workshops, collaborative experiments or site visits).  All activities and presentations are to be based on background material, provided to the co-ordinator/examiner one weeek in advance in order to enable internal and external distribution. Participants are expected to arrive prepared and to actively use the seminar as a forum for discussing academic knowledge.
