“Memories from Resistance” | Sophie Hochhäusl || Radcliffe Institute

As part of the 2017–2018 Fellows' Presentation Series at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study, Sophie Hochhäusl RI '18 presents "'Memories from Resistance': Women, War, and the Forgotten Work of Margarete Schütte-Lihotzky, 1919–1989." By charting Schütte-Lihotzky's work, including her political activism, Hochhäusl's talk highlights new networks of exchange and expertise among women, along with the agency of social movements in design histories.

Hochhäusl is an architect and architectural historian whose scholarly work centers on modern architecture and urban culture in Austria, Germany, and the United States with a focus on environmental history, women and gender studies, and the history of social movements. She is an assistant professor of modern architecture in the Department of History of Art and Architecture at Boston University and the 2017–2018 Frieda L. Miller Fellow at the Radcliffe Institute, Harvard University.
