Dora Epstein Jones, Ph.D., is a theorist and teacher of architectural culture. Her work mainly focuses on the discipline of architecture, and includes interrogations of the discipline’s boundaries and operations through examinations of tectonics, practice and pedagogy, as well as (generally external) concerns such as gender, sex, mobility and criticality. She has published in Log, Arch’it, ArcCa and ACSA, curated exhibitions at the A+D Museum, SCI-Arc and local galleries, as well as written essays for publications by J,P:A, Office dA, UCLA Architecture and anthologies on gender and sex in architecture.

She was the Coordinator of Cultural Studies from 2003-2011 and the current Coordinator of General Studies at SCI-Arc.
