Athena Lecture Series

ETH CASE organizes in collaboration with the Parity- and Diversity Group of DARCH a series of lectures by internationally recognized designers and scholars in the field of urban studies, architecture, urban design, urban and city planning and landscape architecture. This International ATHENA LECTURE SERIES invites 8 world class female scholars to D-ARCH in the years 2020-2021. The Athena Lecture Series gives students and faculty an opportunity to interact with leading senior and junior faculty— female scholars, scientists, architects and professionals who are internationally and globally renowned. By bringing the brightest minds, most engaging speakers, and influential people to ETH Hönggerberg, we want to encourage thought-provoking conversations and genesis of ideas. 

During their visit, invited guests present their scholarly and creative research in a public lecture. The public lecture is followed then by an engaging discussion with moderator. An Apéro with informal discussions provide students & faculty the opportunity to further engage with the lecturer.
WHO Do YOU want to invite to our school? WHO are the creative minds of the future? NOW you can submit your favorites - and vote on them in October. WE will engage our forces into inviting and bringing them HERE for YOU.
The ATHENA Lectures are made possible by the financial support of ETH (presidents office) and of D-ARCH.
