CRT 5504 - Aesthetics & Critical Theory

Description
This seminar introduces key theoretical texts drawn from a range of social and intellectual contexts. Participants will engage cases in art and design using critical tools and perspectives drawn from modern philosophy, psychoanalysis, accounts of modernism and postmodernism, feminism, queer theory, postcolonialism, aesthetics and politics, and the cultural formation of taste, value, and ideology. While the specific emphasis of the seminar changes periodically, this course develops critical analytic and writing skills and prepares students for pressing debates in contemporary art and design. Class Notes: 8 seats reserved for Undergraduate students until the Open Enrollment period.
