Isabelle Doucet is professor of theory and history of architecture at Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, where she also acts as ACE’s coordinator for the university-wide Gender Initiative for Excellence (Genie). Since joining Chalmers, Isabelle initiated the research project “Women Architects and 1968”, beginning with pilot research on women graduates at Chalmers. Previously Isabelle was based at the University of Manchester, Manchester School of Architecture, and has also taught at universities in Belgium, Italy, Germany, and The Netherlands. Her research focuses on the relationship between architecture, (urban) politics, and social responsibility with a focus on the 1970s and the repercussions of architecture's "post-political" turn. She examines such questions through both conceptual-methodological inquiries and historical and contemporary cases.
Isabelle’s books include The Practice Turn in Architecture. Brussels after 1968 (2015) and the co-edited volume Transdisciplinary Knowledge Production in Architecture and Urbanism (2011, with Nel Janssens). She recently co-edited the thematic issue “Resist Reclaim Speculate. Situated Perspectives on Architecture and the City” (Architectural Theory Review, 2018, with Hélène Frichot) and had previously co-edited thematic issues for Footprint Journal and Candide Journal for Architectural Knowledge. Isabelle’s research has been published in journals including Architecture & Culture, Architectural Theory Review, Oase Journal of Architecture, City Culture and Society, E-Flux, and the Journal of Educational Administration and History; and in edited volumes, such as the recently published Routledge Companion to Architecture and Social Engagement (Routledge 2018).
Since 2018, Isabelle acts as a general editor for Architectural Histories, the journal of the European Architectural History Network (https://journal.eahn.org). In 2018-2019, she participated in the Multidisciplinary Research Program titled “Architecture and/for the Environment” (https://www.cca.qc.ca/en/events/55861/multidisciplinary-research-program-architecture-andfor-the-environment) organised by the Canadian Centre for Architecture (CCA) with the support of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
