ARCH 1518 Introduction to Topics in Architectural Representation
Contextural Representation: Drawing and Belonging.
Structured as a discussion seminar and design workshop, the course will introduce students to strategies of architectural representation through an engagement with literature connected to the critical framework of Afro-pessimist discourse. Using the language of architectural drawing, students will expand upon selected readings - including those by Dionne Brand, Saidiya Hartman, and Christina Sharpe - to illuminate an understanding of Blackness and belonging, one interwoven with our shared history of the trans-Atlantic slave trade and its still unfolding afterlife.
This course may be counted as a free department elective toward the B.Arch degree. It may also be used to satisfy a requirement for the architecture minor.
High school students may enroll only if they have completed ARCH 1110/1300.
