The School of the Art Institute of Chicago is launching a seven-day workshop for college and university faculty and instructors, “Chicago Designs: New Approaches to Teaching Social History and Design,” which introduces participants to design-related archives and collections across Chicago. The project brings a critical eye to established design histories and reveals hidden narratives of labor and disability as well as other histories. Participants develop and share teaching resources (syllabi, teaching plans, assignment templates, bibliographies, etc.) based on collection materials, which are gathered on a public website in partnership with area archives and other collecting organizations.
