Advanced Research Seminar is a new course in Art and Design History and Theory that emphasizes advanced research and writing skills in the discipline and literature of the art, design and architecture fields. The course, required for most Parsons students, will prepare students for a thesis or capstone project in the fourth year and ground their art, design and architecture practice in the context of a broader historical and theoretical framework. The class builds on material and skills introduced in the required first-year Objects as History and Integrative Seminar 2 courses and in the second-year history and theory classes. Providing historical context and advanced critical and research methodologies in sections dedicated to art and design practice, the constructed environment, fashion, and visual culture, the instructor will, through lectures, discussions, conferences, readings, and first-hand study of objects and environments guide students through significant research and writing projects. The Fashion inflection explores fashion as object, image, text, practice, theory, and concept. Using a range of interdisciplinary research methods, students will develop a critical understanding of fashion and its manifold global intersections with identities, histories, and cultures. How does fashion speak? What information do we derive from the vast system of material, image, body, history and site within the social and global sphere? Students will engage with such complexities while interrogating new ways to approach topics such as form, beauty and sustainability.

The course, required for most Parsons students, will prepare students for a thesis or capstone project in the fourth year and ground their art, design and architecture practice in the context of a broader historical and theoretical framework. The class builds on material and skills introduced in the required first-year Objects as History and Integrative Seminar 2 courses and in the second-year history and theory classes. Providing historical context and advanced critical and research methodologies in sections dedicated to art and design practice, the constructed environment, fashion, and visual culture, the instructor will, through lectures, discussions, conferences, readings, and first-hand study of objects and environments guide students through significant research and writing projects. The Fashion inflection explores fashion as object, image, text, practice, theory, and concept. Using a range of interdisciplinary research methods, students will develop a critical understanding of fashion and its manifold global intersections with identities, histories, and cultures. How does fashion speak? What information do we derive from the vast system of material, image, body, history and site within the social and global sphere? Students will engage with such complexities while interrogating new ways to approach topics such as form, beauty and sustainability.
