Teaching Business and Labor History to Art and Design Students

The development of interdisciplinary curriculum integrating business and labor history into professional art and design study.

Through a partnership among History faculty, and Art and Design faculty, "Teaching Business and Labor History to Art and Design Students" will develop curricula intended to educate students about the business and labor history of the art and design professions. Content will explore how this history impacts present-day industry, careers and professional decision-making. Key project elements will include Art-and-Design faculty professional development conducted by History professors; collaborative curricular development; two conferences; and the creation of a resource website. The initiative addresses an expressed need from Art-and-Design faculty and students for a more complete understanding of the historical influences that have shaped art- and design-business management, the creative process, technology and production. The initiative will help ensure that Art and Design students are well-equipped for the professional demands of the 21st Century.
