Post-Radical Design Pedagogy Lecture Series: Designing Futures Through Omni-Specialized Design
- September 25, 2020 at 4:00 PM - 5:30 PM
In this talk, Ari Melenciano describes her research, practice and pedagogical approach to design in speculating and building futures that are ecologically-centered, equitable, and pluralistic. Ari will share her research on indigenous and African practices and technologies, Afrocentric pedagogical designs, and the intersectional community building process of Afrotectopia.
Post-Radical Pedagogy (Assistant Professors Nida Abdullah, Chris Lee and Xinyi Li) was convened as a space to explore, antagonize, challenge, and interrogate institutional values and legacies. The program operates as a vehicle to activate pedagogical practice through and against institutional inertia.
This year, they are hosting the Post-Radical Design Pedagogy Lecture Series, exploring the way that white supremacy pervades design pedagogy from institutional policy, curricular language to everyday interactions and technological reliance in the studio.
