Dijana Alic teaches design, history and theory at the UNSW Sydney’s Faculty for ‘Built Environment’ and examines the relationships between architecture, society and politics in her research and teaching. Her work focuses on issues of social equality, cultural memory and political history that are expressed in the urban fabric. Her interest in the interface between science and teaching is ideally suited to linking profession, government and industry with science and has enabled her to develop numerous postgraduate design and research courses that have connected the university’s educational context with both governmental and non-governmental organisations. She has also published in such renowned architectural publications as the Journal of the Society of Architectural Historians, Fabrications, Open House International and Centropa. Her research has been published in numerous books, including such recent examples as Materiality in Art and Architecture (Routledge, 2016), Sydney’s Martin Place, a Kultur- und Designgeschichte (Cultural and Design History, Allen & Unwin, 2016) and Identity and Human Rights, a Multidisciplinary Perspective (Inter-Disciplinary Press, Oxford, 2016).
