Ad Agency Ethics

This course explores the ethics, morals, personalities, behaviors, and career techniques of advertising's legends across the ages. The intention is to provide a creative perspective on the underpinnings of creative leadership decisions being made to engage or disengage movements, industries, clients, an isolated assignment, and the larger professional community. Although history will provide a large terrain with which to illustrate personal values and beliefs, we will consistently reframe the past dilemmas onto today's conditions to give students reference for their upcoming careers. Engaging in weekly "War Game" scenarios, students will all be placed in the line of "Live Fire" with regard to professional issues: client complexities, market turbulence, agency conflict, and the realm of the personal. Students will develop a framework on which to make informed ethical decisions and a skill set forbuilding socially conscious, focused brand voices. Open to all majors.

Second Nature

Untamed, artificial, nurturing, destructive, endangered. How we see nature is always framed by culture; at some distance, as second nature to ourselves. This TDS examines all cultural representations of nature: the history of painted landscapes, photography, cinema, video art, design including architecture, and poetry and literature. The physical form of landscape will be considered as well, especially when it is culturally manipulated, as we find in gardens, earth works and sculpture. We will go on field trips to study the local landscape, as a source of history and inspiration. The environment, economics, race, gender and sexuality will provide multiple lenses through which we view the horizon. We will additionally consider our own "wildness," however that may manifest. This class is a five hour studio TDS with an embedded H&S component. We will have lectures, seminar discussions, screenings, field trips and class critiques of student work. All departments and disciplines are accepted. Projects can be in any media. Participants will produce art or design projects for the class, including a midterm, a class exhibition, and a final.
