Course Description

DES222: Research Methods and Critical Writing for Design
Open to advanced undergraduates with instructor's permission

This graduate research methods and writing seminar covers different methods of historical research (book/journal/review of the literature, archival, and oral history interviews), as well as quantitative and qualitative approaches useful for researching contemporary topics. We will read the writing of others (selections from 20th-century design history topics) in order to study the methods of research the authors used to construct their arguments and historical narratives.
