Autonomy and Authorship in the Dadaab Refugee Camps
Join us for the 2022 R.K. Teetzel Lecture featuring Anooradha Iyer Siddiqi, Assistant Professor of Architecture at Columbia University’s Barnard College. Her engaging and thought-provoking talk will explore autonomy and authorship – two concepts with a long history in architectural practice and discourse – in the architectural work at the UNHCR-administered refugee camps in Dadaab, Kenya. During this examination, the lecture will encourage audience members to think through concepts of building, gender, expertise and authority.
The 2022-23 R.K Teetzel Lecture is being held in-person at University College, as well as streaming live online for home viewers. Please note that masks are not required at U of T at this time, but this is subjective to change based on public health mandates.

The Teetzel Lectureship was established under the terms of the will of Rita K. Teetzel, who graduated from University College in 1912. In her will, Teetzel requested that a portion of her estate be used "for the furtherance of studies in Architecture for women in University College." This Lectureship aims to bring to the College and to the University of Toronto distinguished lecturers in art and architecture.
Faculty, staff, students, and the public are cordially invited to this hybrid lecture.
