Bard Graduate Center is excited to announce the 2021 Undergraduate Summer School in Decorative Arts, Design History, and Material Culture. Open to advanced undergraduates (rising juniors and seniors) and recent college graduates, the program draws on resources at BGC and around New York City to provide an intensive, two-week program on material culture studies. The topic for 2021 is “Re-Dress and Re-Form: Intersectionality in the History of Fashion and Design, 1850 to Today.” The course will introduce students to the history of design and fashion in the United States and Europe from the mid-nineteenth century to the present day with a focus on how conceptions of race, gender, and class have shaped the world of goods as we know it. Led by faculty members Michele Majer and Freyja Hartzell, this summer school will combine small seminars and behind-the-scenes access to collections. Eligible for 3 upper-level undergraduate credits.
