The University of California Humanities Research Institute (UCHRI) is pleased to announce that the application deadline is extended for its sixth annual
Seminar in Experimental Critical Theory (SECT): DESIGNING CHINA
August 9-22, 2009
Extended Application Deadline: March 2, 2009
This seminar proposes to focus on China, not because China leads the world in the field of design, but because China today is where design issues are raised in perhaps their most problematic and provocative form. The seminar is neither a survey of design nor a training course in design fundamentals; it is not even exclusively about China. Rather, China will be taken as a case study to explore, in the spirit of "experimental critical theory," the larger issues of design in a globalizing world.
UCHRI has been able to raise funds to reduce the fees for SECT VI significantly.
The registration fee will be $750 for students and $1,250 for faculty.
Registration fee covers tuition, accommodation, and some food but not airfare and related travel costs.
