51-174 History of Objects & Images

Related URLs:

History of Objects and Images The primary goal of this course is to give students an introduction to the evolution of human designed objects and images and their connection to the development of different cultures around the world. This course will build on the awareness developed in Human Experience in Design and create a basis for the Design History Course sequence in the second year. It is important to give design students the same sense of heritage in the development of objects and images that art students learn in art history courses. The current design history sequence in the School of Design covers the period between 1800 and 2000. This course will emphasize the development of pre-modern objects and images and the cultural ideas that influenced them. The second major theme in this course is a better understanding of the global dimension of the development of objects and images. This course will extend the idea of SET (Social, Economic and Technical) factors introduced in design history and give students an understanding of how different cultures throughout history made distinct donations to the development of communication, visualization and tools for work, war and everyday life.
