CONCISE CURRICULUM VITAE

Dina Vaiou is professor emeritus of the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA). She has studied architecture in the NTUA (1969-74), planning and urban design in the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) (MA, 1975-77) and urban geography and planning in the University of London (PhD, 1985-90).

 

Between 1982 and 2019 she has been member of the academic staff of the School of Architecture, Department of Urban and Regional Planning of the NTUA. She has taught courses on urban analysis, planning and urban design and on gendered approaches of urban space. She have supervised a significant number of undergraduate research projects and graduation theses. Since the establishment of a post-graduate program in Urban and Regional Planning (1998), she has participated in teaching three courses and has been coordinator of the program during 1998-2003 and 2007-2012.

 

Her research interests, publications in Greece and abroad and papers presented in Conferences include:

  • the feminist critique of urban analysis, with an emphasis on public/private divisions and gender differences in the uses of space and time

  • local labour markets as a perspective for understanding the development of urban and regional space, with particular emphasis on informalisation processes and gender divisions of labour

  • the effects of European integration on women of the South, in relation to the previous two axes

  • transformations of urban space resulting from the settlement of migrant women and men in Greek cities, and in other cities of Southern Europe.

 

She has published numerous articles and books in Greece and abroad. She is member of a number of scientific associations and groups (including SADAS) and, for several terms, she has been member of the editorial board of the following journals: European Planning Studies, Gender, Place and Culture, European Journal of Women’s Studies, Antipode, Γεωγραφίες.
