    The Gender-Eye Approach: Eleven Tales from KTH School of Architecture in Stockholm

Abstract

This is a story about listening to students, making gender norms visible, and working practically with pedagogical and societal values. It is also about how I, as the new Program Director of KTH School of Architecture in 2014, inherited “problem emails” directed to the former leadership of the school and was told “the students are not happy concerning gender equality within the school.” As an educator, I asked myself, how do women recognize themselves in the education conducted here at our school today? Part of this story is about how I, together with students, started a “Gender Equality Society” and made pamphlets that we distributed to everyone at the KTH School of Architecture workplace. This work went on to the publication of the booklet “Enough is Enough” on architecture and gender equality, which currently serves as our statement of aims. Everything is about developing a Gender-Eye Approach in education.
