What do we teach? What do we leave out? How are students contributors of knowledge and leaders in society? How might we encourage design students to engage in inquiry-based research practices? What does an inclusive design history look like? In what ways does this research become a public resource for the community? Seeking Plural Narratives is an experiment between Kansas City Art Institute’s graphic design histories students and University at Buffalo’s typographic systems’ students that attempts to answer these questions. Research partners from both universities investigate, challenge, create and tell an engaging alternate narrative to the Eurocentric design and typographic cultures. This talk will share the process of this research initiative.
