Teaching the History of Modern Design: The Canon and Beyond

A four-week summer institute for twenty-five college and university faculty on teaching the history of modern design.

The Canon and Beyond: Teaching the History of Modern Design is a four week summer teaching institute designed to prepare a diverse group of college faculty to meet an increasing demand to teach courses on the topic. The Institute is organized into three thematic units whose subjects address significant components of introductory courses in modern design history, from the early 19th century through the 1970s. The Institute Director will first present material to ground participants in foundational material that is typically covered in a survey course in design history. Then, a select group of visiting scholars will each lead in-depth seminars on a specific topic related to the thematic units, coinciding with their field of research and expertise. These complementary approaches will build and reinforce familiarity with standard material and major themes in the field, on the one hand, and introduce new material and critical perspectives.
