ART 2501 - Design History and Social Impact


As a result of globalization, studying cross-cultural design provides a framework of visual culture that emphasizes the role of design in diverse communication exchanges and public discourse. Particularly important is that a history of design transcends mere exposure to various traditions of design. Instead, a critical discussion of design in various contexts is encouraged as a way to understand our own cultural patterns of design among a broader history. An inclusive classification of design will be used to track significant developments in design across technological, physical and social contexts.
