Jennifer Raum

I’m a PhD student at the Faculty of Architecture and Urbanism at the Bauhaus-University in Weimar. My doctoral research explores utopian thinking in the field of architectural theory and philosophy with a focus on posthuman perspectives. I am based in Nuremberg, Germany, where I finished my Master’s degree in Architecture in 2017. Since then I have been working as a research assistant at the Nuremberg Institute of Technology, teaching courses for undergraduate and postgraduate students in various design studios and seminars. My teaching practice focuses on architectural theory and environmental issues, as well as their intersection. In my teaching practice “Plural Realities” for instance, my aim is to widen the spectrum of possible viewpoints on architecture to overcome the anthropocentric bias. From September to December 2022, I am based at the University of Melbourne for a research visit with Hélène Frichot, exploring new ways of creating knowledge on the multitude of environments that surround us.
