My name is Blaž Križnik. I graduated from the Faculty of Architecture, University of Ljubljana and continued my studies at the Rotterdam Academy of Architecture and Urban Design. I finished doctoral study in sociology of everyday life at the Faculty of Social Sciences, University of Ljubljana. I worked as a visiting research fellow or visiting professor at the Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia in Barcelona, Seoul Development Institute, University of Seoul, Kwangwoon University and Seoul National University Asia Center. I am the cofounder and senior researcher at the Institute for Spatial Policies in Ljubljana.
At the moment I work as an associate professor at the Graduate School of Urban Studies, Hanyang University in Seoul. My research work is focused on comparative urban studies, urban social movements and Korean studies.
This blog compiles texts which I wrote over the past few years for different books, journals, magazines and web sites. Links to the original sites, where available, are also provided, as well as links to institutions and organisations, where I used to or still work at the moment.
