Edwina Attlee

Edwina Attlee is a writer and researcher. At The Cass, she teaches Critical and Contextual Studies in Architecture and Interiors.

She took an interdisciplinary PhD with the London Consortium, exploring the practice of place and cultural histories of the launderette, the sleeper train, the fire escape, the greasy spoon and the postcard. Her current research focuses on the politics of spare time in the context of house/women's work and spaces of childhood.

Her teaching is based on an understanding of both writing and reading as practices. She runs the postgraduate optional modules Writing About Architecture and Critical Transformations.

She is a Teaching Fellow at the Bartlett School of Architecture and has previously taught at Glasgow School of Art and Birkbeck College.

She runs the reading series Sitting Room and her writing has appeared in Dandelion, Cities Methodologies, Test Centre, The Poetry Review, The Guardian, The White Review and Poetry & Audience. She has published two pamphlets of poetry, Roasting Baby (If a Leaf Falls Press) and The Cream (Clinic).
