Design (and) Economies

Spring 2019

Taught By: Koray Caliskan

Section: A

CRN: 7861

Credits: 3

This course aims at introducing graduate students of design and social research to the intersecting realm of encounter between design scholarship and the ethnographical research concerning economies. Reading from anthropology of markets, management, organization studies, sociology of economization and design scholarship, we will explore how design and social research considerations, once deployed together, can help us better understand design (and) economies. How are design and capitalism related? What discourses cloud and enlighten thinking about design economization? In what ways organizational, industrial, strategic, and artistic design relate and cannot relate to contemporary exchange and production relations? How do current relations of economization form, reform and deform design practices? In what ways sociological, anthropological and political economic research inform design research and theory? How does design scholarship respond to challenges on which social researchers have been working?
