This course examines American history and culture through design. Specifically, the class will explore different methodologies to guide students through various approaches to understanding the past and the present. We will read texts from a number of disciplines, including American studies, anthropology, art history, design history, design studies, history, and sociology. Ultimately, we will grapple with the problems and possibilities that come to the fore when we use objects, spaces, and the discourse about design as source material.
