Tanja Paulitz is professor for cultural sociology and the sociology of knowledge at the Institute of Sociology of the TU Darmstadt. Her research is based in the fields of science and technology studies, higher education studies, women and gender studies, as well as discourse studies. She has a longstanding research interest in academic cultures of knowledge and their processes of subjectivization from a historical and current perspective across a wide range of disciplines. In her book Mann und Maschine (transcript-Verlag, 2012), she reconstructs the genealogy of masculinities in modern engineering as an academic field. Her current project “Discourses of Masculinity in Architecture between Art and Engineering” explores gender relations in architecture and particularly examines the “boundary work” in relation to technology. The focus is on cultural orders of knowledge and their relevance for the emergence of architecture as an academic discipline, as well as their impact on the professional and disciplinary cultures of the field.
