The Proseminar equips students with the skills required for scholarship in the history of design and the decorative arts. In-class discussions introduce a range of methodologies and critical approaches. Exercises train students in essential tasks such as conducting formal analyses, writing catalogue entries, and making visual presentations. This writing-intensive course stresses the mechanics of expository writing through projects that require students to conduct and integrate primary and secondary source research. Each student selects one work from the Cooper-Hewitt collection to study throughout the semester. Preliminary drafts of papers, proposals, and bibliographies will also be submitted throughout the semester.
