These fall courses in Savannah still have some space available:

Writing About Design (WRIT 495D — new elective)
M/W, 11-1:30, Arnold 231
Design has joined art, literature, architecture, film, and other forms of cultural expression as a subject of critical inquiry, and a popular topic for both writers and readers in a range of contexts, from scholarly journals to mass-oriented blogs, from business publications to indie/DIY online media.

This course recognizes design as a crucial topic with a growing audience, and addresses ways to write about it now: coming up with original ideas, identifying the best venues to express them, and expressing them effectively.

Aimed at writing students who wish to learn how to address design, as well as design majors who recognize the the value in writing skillfully about their field, the course will include direct exposure to writers, producers, creators, and designers who have found strategies to articulate their design passions and make a living — in the real world.

The course is taught by Rob Walker, a contributing writer to The New York Times Magazine and Design Observer. Author of “Buying In” and other books, co-editor of Significant Objects, co-founder of Unconsumption and other independent projects, and contributor to venues from The Atlantic to public radio’s Marketplace, Walker is often called on as an expert commentator on design and consumer culture, notably in the documentary “Objectified.”
