Intro to Design Studies Lec

Spring 2020

Taught By: Ulrich Lehmann

Section: A

CRN: 2593

Credits: 0

This class examines different aspects of design and visuality by looking at larger questions of production, consumption, and use and how these issues become part of a larger discourse about design and visual culture. The design process is intricately tied to visuality, or how things appear and look; thus, the course uses images to provide students with a better understanding of their chosen field of study at Parsons. We will assess the relationship between design and the visual by investigating questions about gender, spatial control, ethics, race, status, and class. We will look at a variety of theoretical, historical, social, and political writings to explore this complicated topic. Pathway: Design Studies

Open to: University undergraduate students. Pre-requisites: first-year university writing course and at least one prior history or methods course in art, media, film, or visual culture. This course counts toward the Gender Studies minor. Co-requisite(s): PLDS 2501 Recitation
