Abstract [en]

Calling all architectural feminist killjoys!

Academic publishers Routledge produce a series called ‘Thinkers for Architects’, introducing philosophical and theoretical ideas to an architectural audience. The fifteen current titles include the usual suspects, Bourdieu, Foucault, Derrida, Merleau-Ponty, with one female thinker, Irigaray. In this publication, we begin to suggest a new series and to outline a book they should have commissioned, ‘Ahmed for Architecture Students’, as a critical revision and architectural killjoy. Based on key texts spanning queer feminist Sara Ahmed’s career as a critical scholar, this master’s seminar course has collectively produced a fanzine to introduce Ahmed’s ideas and concepts, along with possible connections to the discipline and culture of architecture, making them accessible to architecture students and practitioners.

We have provided three digital files: 1) Digital Spreads - Fanzine, for reading directly on a digital device. 2) Print version - Fanzine Inlay, for printing your own hard copy of the inner pages. 3) Print version - Fanzine Cover, for printing your own hard copy of the outer cover. (On the back of the cover, you will find DIY Instructions to assemble your own fanzine.)

We think the fanzine is ‘amazingly awesome’ and encourage you to share the link to the DiVA database for download, so we have an idea of how many people find our publication. And why not organize a ‘DIY Fanzine workshop’, to make and share the fanzine with friends? Bake a lemon poppy seed cake for starters and be sure to use recycled paper!
