Stephanie Dadour

Visiting Associate Professor

Ph.D. Architecture, Ensa Paris-Malaquais, France

Stéphanie Dadour is affiliated with the French Collaborative Institute on Migration since 2019 and researcher within the Architecture Culture Société research lab. Her engagement in schools of architecture led her to collaborate with various institutions (University of Montreal, Columbia University, Center Pompidou Paris) and to teach in several schools of architecture in France and Lebanon. She is co-editor-in-chief of the magazine Métropolitiques and co-founder of the Dadour de Pous Architecture office.

Interested in the spatial, cultural, and political dimensions of the domestic sphere, her early research allowed her to historicize the intersections between feminisms and architecture. More recently, she mobilizes feminist theories and epistemologies in her work, thus taking a critical look at architecture and its systems of ideas: stories, canonical texts, and theories. Her latest research focuses on the reception and accommodation of exiles by citizens in France, through the home-making process.

Among her published books Des voix s’élèvent. Féminismes et Architecture, (Editions de la Villette, 2022), Enseigner l’architecture à Grenoble. Une histoire, des acteurs, une formation (with S. Le Vot, Editions Recherches), The Housing Project. Discourses, ideals, models and politics in 20th century exhibitions, (with G. Caramellino, Leuven University Press, 2020), and Le Pôle Molière aux Mureaux, (Archibooks, 2015).
