Making + Meaning: Voice

Fall 2020

Taught By: Radhika Subramaniam

Section: A

CRN: 9127

Credits: 3

This course explores the implications of voice as property in politics, identity, law, culture and relationships. Examining a range of questions — What does it mean to find or lose one's voice, to raise one's voice, or to give voice? Whose voices are recognized? Is voice only human? Through readings, art and performance work, we will consider what it means to voice and be silent, to listen and to be heard. We will think about hesitations, interruptions, screams and sighs, noise, clarity and accents as well as growls, purrs, and insect and machinic hums. Students will be encouraged to explore the possibilities and limits of our mouths and ears. In Making and Meaning courses, design practice, broadly defined, will be engaged as a critical methodology. Students will be provided instruction that is both skills-driven -- in, for example, writing, accessories design, or printmaking -- and content driven -- for example, the history of the prison industrial complex, or geography studied from the perspective of cultural theory and photographic history.

Open to: University undergraduate degree students, freshmen and sophomores only. Pre-requisite(s): first-year university writing course and at least one prior history or methods course in art, media, film, or visual culture. Note: Priority will be given to BFA Design History and Practice majors.

Spring 2021

Taught By: Rory O'Dea

Section: A

CRN: 8427

Credits: 3

This course looks at the ways in which students can use their BFA degree in Design History and Practice after graduating from Parsons. Instead of only assuming that this degree can lead to one, particular kind of job, this course assesses a wide range of possibilities that relate to careers in art and design. While there will be ample conversation in the classroom about the professionalization of this degree, students will also interact with (both at Parsons and off campus) various professionals who will share their life experiences in the arts and design. The course also looks at post-professional tracks that will include commercial, academic, as well as studio-based careers.
