EVENT DETAILS

Open Discussion: Global Visual and Material Culture: Prehistory to 1800 custom textbook
Room 284

12:30pm to 1:30pm, Thursday September 20, 2012

Hosted by Dean Shailer

Faculty of Liberal Arts & Sciences Dean Kathryn Shailer hosts an open discussion related to the custom textbook for the course LBST 1B04, Global Visual and Material Culture: Prehistory to 1800. This discussion aims to clarify misinformation surrounding how the text was reproduced, and to give students an opportunity to raise their concerns.

The Global Visual and Material Culture: Prehistory to 1800 custom textbook combines three textbooks into one:

1. Art History, 4th ed. by Stokstad and Cothren – excerpts from the full
1150-page text. Volume One retails for $144.

2. Graphic Design History: A Critical Guide, 2nd ed. by Drucker/McVarish – excerpts. This volume retails for $92.

3. A custom reader with all the additional material we have added (which includes printed images) and would cost approximately $65 – $75 (see page iii of text for list of items).

All students in LBST 1B04 have access to the electronic versions of the full Stokstad/Cothren and Drucker/McVarish texts.

This textbook is designed to prepare OCAD University first-year students for OCAD U programs. This has meant creating a new Visual Culture reader for this new course, one that includes:
• the most relevant art history and only material that would be assigned;
• more design history;
• more Canadian content;
• more Aboriginal material;
• refocused and better organized global material.

OCAD University recognizes that costs are a major issue for students. Reproducing the sections from the Stokstad/Cothren and Drucker/McVarish texts without images realizes a significant savings for students.

We look forward to meeting with all students who are impacted by this issue.
