Program Description

Bard Graduate Center; The Center for Craft, Creativity & Design; and the Museum of Arts and Design are pleased to announce the symposium, Shared Ground: Cross-Disciplinary Approaches to Craft Studies.

The “material-turn” in the humanities has brought increased attention to the study of craft in art and design history, decorative arts and material culture studies, as well as other disciplines, such as anthropology and science and technology studies. Institutions are combining academic traditions of the humanities and social sciences with “learning by doing” pedagogy and the influence of global studies has led scholars to research, understand, and contextualize craft outside of the studio craft or the arts and craft movements. Beyond the humanities and social sciences, fields ranging from architecture and urban planning to engineering and computer science have begun to explore the craft-like nature and implications of their research and professional practice.

A detailed schedule and ticketing information is available here.
