Jamer Hunt | Why Transdisciplinary Design? Why Now?

Emily Carr University of Art + Design is pleased to present a public lecture, The Transdisciplinary Nature of Design by Jamer Hunt of Parsons the New School for Design.

Jamer Hunt is the Chair of Urban and Transdisciplinary Design at Parsons, where is he developing a new graduate program in Transdisciplinary Design. Previously, he served for seven years at The University of the Arts in Philadelphia as Director of the Masters Program in Industrial Design.

His teaching and his professional work focus on design as a means for exploring the politics and poetics of the everyday. Dr. Hunt holds a doctorate in cultural anthropology and has consulted or worked at Smart Design, frogdesign, WRT, Seventh Generation, and Virtual Beauty.

His practice, Big + Tall Design, combines conceptual, collaborative, and communication design, and he is co-founder of DesignPhiladelphia, an initiative to energize Philadelphia’s design community and foreground the city as a laboratory for innovative design projects. Dr. Hunt has served on the Board of Directors of the American Center for Design, on the editorial board of the forthcoming journal Design and Culture. He is currently co-authoring a graphic design textbook for Thames & Hudson entitled Form Follows Context.
