The New School’s Spring 2022 semester in the books

Faculty authors have grappled with a number of pressing social and cultural issues in several books published this semester – from a critical exploration of fascism as a form of political mythmaking to a philosophical study of the concept of boredom. and an anthology that highlights design education practices, research, and stories from a black/African diasporic lens.

New School faculty members have also produced several compelling pieces of work during the fall 2021 semester.

Also included in this list is the inaugural edition of Framea publication produced by the Communications Design community at Parsons School of Design that highlights the many ways in which students and faculty build and support each other by translating, creating and articulating ideas and forms, and creates a valuable capsule to reflect on the contemporary practice of communication design and pedagogy in the 21st century.
