Anooradha Siddiqi’s Fall 2018 course, Histories of Architecture and Feminism, engages with questions of feminist, architectural, and spatial historiography. As stated in the syllabus, the course “follows the iterative pedagogical structure of an architectural studio, but emphasizes inquiry through open-ended project-based research rather than making.” The seminar has modeled multiple modes of collaboration with the Barnard Library and Milstein Centers, including work with Barnard Archives’ collections, the construction of a collaborative annotated bibliography, and student-led class interviews with scholars engaged in feminist scholarship. 

On Monday, December 3 from 3:00-4:15 PM, join the Center for Engaged Pedagogy and the Digital Humanities Center for a discussion with Professor Anooradha Siddiqi and librarians and archivists Meredith Wisner, Shannon O’Neill, and Martha Tenney about their intentions for and experiences of collaborating on this course.
