Literary and Cultural Theory: Architectures of Theory

Andrew Cole

Back to "Spring 2023" courses

This class engages with spatial analysis across a range of disciplines and approaches; from architecture, architectural theory and manifestos to continental philosophy, Marxism, Black studies, decolonial writings, and a sample of graphic- and novelistic depictions of built space. We ask whether thinking about built space as a “language” is fundamentally different from “picturing” space or inhabiting space with our bodies, and whether these approaches count as “cognitive mapping.” We contemplate the dystopian actualities and utopian possibilities inherent in the built environment and the constructive projects of world building.
