Course/ Final Paper from the syllabus : This course approaches to research as a resource of imaginative and critical inquiry for artists and designers. Students will embark on their own semester-long research project, directly related to their creative practice, which engages visual and narrative history, as well as critical theory. Students will assemble and analyze historical and contemporary information, images, objects, materials, and data of all sorts to compile a collection or “archive” practical for their own use as both researchers and practitioners. Building on skills and projects developed, the Research Seminar will be staged to address and explore the practicalities of historical research. Topics include observation and description as primary research; defining research area(s); identifying research methodologies most useful to a particular subject area; locating appropriate historical sources for the student’s project (these may include photographs, films, primary and secondary literature, archives, and museum exhibits, etc.); posing critical questions about that material or source; developing an artist/designer/project statement; and writing a formal academic research paper developed out of the research conducted over the course of the semester. The identification, collection, and critical examination of historical, critical, and theoretical sources will provide a deeper and broader context for each student’s creative visual and material practice, and for his or her thesis project, specifically. The Fashion inflection explores fashion as object, image, text, practice, theory, and concept. Using a range of interdisciplinary research methods, students will develop a critical understanding of fashion and its manifold global intersections with identities, histories, and cultures. How does fashion speak? What information do we derive from the vast system of material, image, body, history, and site within the social and global sphere? Students will engage with such complexities while interrogating new ways to approach topics such as form, beauty, and sustainability.
