Meike Schalk appointed as fellow at TUM Institute for Advanced Study

Prof. Meike Schak receives the TUM-IAS Anna Boyksen Fellowship. The promotion is awarded to outstanding scientists from outside TUM who intend to explore gender- and diversity-relevant themes in the context of the natural and engineering sciences together with a TUM research group.

Prof. Meike Schalk

Meike Schalk is an architect, and Associate Professor of Urban Studies and Urban Theory and docent at KTH School of Architecture in Stockholm. During the 2019/2020 winter term, she has been Visiting Professor at TUM Architecture.
Her new 2-year fellowship will serve extensive collaboration. Prof. Dr. Benedikt Boucsein will serve as host professor.

The fellowship will bring together a research group across professorships and fields at TUM, and collaborate with the Department of Sociology at LMU, to examine how (in)equalities are embedded, produced and reproduced in architectural representations, discourses, norms, traditions, cultures, education, communication, material conditions and working regimes.
Activities include research-based teaching activities across TUM, the development of pedagogical formats, as well as the development of theory and methods for practice-based research.

Meike Schalk is a real push for TUM’s Department of Architecture and serves as a good starting point for deeper scientific cooperation as well as student exchange with KTH’s School of Architecture.
