Two Deep Dives

You will submit two deep dives, one on ?Cities: Laboratories for Social Movements? and one on, ?Taste: Modernist and Post Modern perspectives.? Your work should demonstrate a breadth and depth with regard to course content, as demonstrated by explicit references to readings, and a sense that your thinking has developed in relation to lectures and tutorials.
Each deep dive will be 1000-1200 words in length and include at least one properly referenced image that you need to discuss explicitly in your writing.
Exemplary work for this assessment will demonstrate the following:
– an appreciation for the layers complexity that make up the texture of design history;
– an understanding of the course content but also the animating principles or key ideas that bring it together;
– an explicit appreciation for rigor and is unmistakably not just popular opinion;
– a sense of the assessment working both in terms of its detail and as a whole (i.e.
a cohesive, purposefully put together bit of writing that indicates you have taken
ownership of the material;
– there are a range of explicit and suggestive references to the readings;
– evidence of engagement with further research;
– cohesively structured paragraphs that smoothly introduce quoted material;
– impeccable referencing in the appropriate style (minimal to no errors in-text and
reference list);
– compelling and detailed use of relevant images to support written element,
including evidence of formal and semiotic analysis.
Subject learning objectives
This task addresses the following subject learning objectives:
2. Understand the complexity of key historical events important to design;
3. Describe and analyse perceptual experience, including an awareness of the relationship between form, style, material and idea; 5. Develop professional research practice.
This task also addresses the following course intended learning outcomes that are linked with a code to indicate one of the five CAPRI graduate attribute categories (e.g. C.1, A.3, P.4, etc.):
