Post-Radical Design Pedagogy Lecture Series: Designing Futures Through Omni-Specialized Design
September 25, 2020 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.
Lectures will be last Friday of the month. Stay tuned for upcoming speakers! Follow @post_radical_pedagogy on Instagram or check out post-rad-pedagogy.github.io for updates!
