2013/2014 Güz döneminde Görsel İletişim Tasarımı Yüksek Lisans programında sunulacak olan 2 seçmeli ders hakkında sizi kısaca bilgilendirmek isteriz:
VCD 515 kodlu DESIGN PROPOSAL isimli ders Önder Sevimli (firstname.lastname@example.org) tarafından Cuma akşamları saat +18:30-21:30 arasında verilecektir.
What does it mean to propose a design or a work of art? What is the potential made available by offering to produce a sensory experience in response to an issue, problem or observation that may not, at least not primarily, bear an aesthetic nature? This course intends to explore these questions through reference to the socio-political significance of art, design and spectatorship as fields of critical practice and inquiry, particularly in relation to other categories of intellectual and productive activity.
VCD 519 kodlu STUDIES IN DEAD MEDIA and CULTURE I dersimiz Dr. Zafer Arcagök (email@example.com) tarafından Perşembe akşamları +19:00 – 22:00 arasında verilecektir.
Research into “dead media” technologies has become an intensive field of research especially after the work of the German media theorist, Friedrich Kittler. Over the last decade or so, scholars in several disciplines have embarked on a series of media-archaeological excavations, sifting through the layers of early and obsolete practices and technologies of communication. The archaeological metaphor evokes both the desire to recover material traces of the past and the imperative to situate those traces in their social, cultural, and political contexts – while always minding our steps. In line with Kittler’s and his followers’ researches in this field, this course is devoted to media archaeology, that is, historical research into forgotten, obsolete, or otherwise “dead” media technologies on both global and local levels. This might include papyrus, the passage from scriviners (hattatlar) to Müteferrika’s printing press, Athanasius Kircher’s seventeenth-century magic lantern, or the common slide projector, discontinued by Kodak in 2004.
Bu iki dersimiz de İngilizce yapılacaktır ve İstanbul Bilgi Üniversitesi yüksek lisans programlarına kayıtlı tüm lisansüstü öğrencilerimizin ve ERASMUS öğrencilerimizin katılımına açıktır.
