About the Networked Design Talks

With the rise of the Internet over the past few decades we have witnessed the rise of networked culture. The effects of this transition extend far beyond the use of tools: they change the ways we communicate with each other and the ways we manage, construct and perceive our individual and group identities. This cultural shift requires the creative industry to reexamine its use of messages, symbols and aesthetics and to study their function within a constantly changing networked environment. The Networked Design Talks represent the first step of an academic research initiative in this area undertaken by Parsons AAS Graphic Design faculty members led by the Program’s Director, Katarzyna Gruda.

Sponsored by the School of Art, Media & Technology at Parsons, the New School for Design.

  2. Charles,

    Big thanks for streaming the Swiss Miss talk! I wasn’t able to make it to the lecture (and from what I hear, it was standing room only), so having the opportunity to view it on my own time is a boon. Now I’ll have to go back and listened to the rest of the Networked talks. This is a great service to the University community. Kudos.

  3. It’s slightly embarrassing that Parsons – a design school – is using a stock WordPress theme on a showcase site that’s being sent all over the internet in support of these talks. But the site itself is also riddled with errors. The school’s name is wrong in the header (it’s Parsons The New School for Design… not “of Design”), links are broken (“read more” in the header and “About” in the footer both lead nowhere or to empty content) and several of the faculty’s education, work affiliations and classes taught are incorrect. I’m sure this whole thing was put up as a temporary stopgap, but here we are six months later with the same “solution” (and errors) in place. This is community college behavior – not becoming of a world famous design school like Parsons. Please fix the errors, then please delete this comment!

  4. Hi Tina,
    I’m out of town but if I can get our design channel producers to join me we’re going to try to make it. Thanks for letting us know about this exciting series – the topic is very relevant, and original.
