EP 214, 5:45-7:45 pm, TR.


In today’s world, design is literally all around us. This course will chart a course through the numerous design revolutions that gave life to the 20th Century, from Modern to Late Modern to Post Modern, and which continue to shape the world we share now. Beginning with the rise of industrial-influenced design in Britain in the early 19th Century, this course will provide students with a deep understanding of the crucial role leading-edge design plays in defining its age, allow them to become conversant with and learn the motivations behind the prevailing trends at any given period, and provide them with the means to reinterpret influential styles in their own work.

 The course counts as a Journalism elective in the degree. Open to any undergraduate.
