Life of Things

PWR 2GMB - Spring 2014 - Instructor: Moyer, G.
Last Updated: 20-Mar-2014

A guide to resources for PWR 2GMB: The Life of Things. Our relationships with 21st century objects are at once intense, personal, and paradoxically, transient. Students in this class will learn about the processes that produce the things they use every day, analyzing the economic and social history of objects. Selecting an everyday object, students will investigate its life cycle, and get a chance to connect their daily lives with their lives in the classroom.
