Redesigning the Academy

Spring 2022

Taught By: Henry Lee and Shannon Mattern

Section: A

CRN: 11879

Credits: 3

In this workshop, part of the Anthropology + Design graduate minor (although open to all graduate students), we integrate critical university studies, educational anthropology, decolonizing movements, theories and methods of radical pedagogy, histories of alternative schools, and art and design work committed to institutional and pedagogical critique in order to assess the state of the American academy and imagine it otherwise. As we interrogate everything from learning architectures and evaluation systems to admissions and publishing models, we’ll engage in seminar discussions, design workshops, fieldwork exercises, and fieldtrips; host guest speakers; and, depending upon the luck of course planning, potentially collaborate with parallel projects at other institutions. Students will create speculative syllabi and curricula; compose manifestos and critical pitch decks, and design other pedagogical materials and epistemological infrastructures. Permission required.
