Vision

The vision of the course is to encourage potential researchers and practitioners to understand how technologies facilitate the creation, circulation, and reception of knowledge and information, and to explore and critique these concepts through modes of making

As the scope of our design practices increasingly encompasses the digital, it is instructive and intellectually responsible to consider more deeply how technology has always shaped our understandings of the world. The discipline of the digital humanities explores how the questions posed in humanities scholarship are transformed and extended by the digital – both by means of tools and epistemologies. This unique course seeks to enrich the scope of both design and the humanities by using critical methodologies and approaches to reciprocally reflect upon the other. By doing so, students will be able to adapt the modes of inquiry and methodologies embedded in humanities thinking to create both more contextually relevant and responsive technological applications and material objects....
