The idea of hosting a session on “demystifying” the faculty senate is to encourage women faculty who may be reluctant to serve on the senate, to understand the role and the benefits. Furthermore, to develop a better understanding of the workings of the senate.

For example, answering questions such as:

  •  Who can submit a charge to the senate?  When and how does one do that?
  • Can anyone attend a senate meeting?  What should I expect if I attend? 
  • How and when can guests speak?
  • In what ways can I support my college senators and ensure my voice is heard?
  • Any ideas you may have?

Type Specimens: A Visual History of Typesetting and Printing explores founders' and printers' specimens as a way of understanding the visual format and professional practice of the specimen. As the inaugural Cary Fellow in 2015, Griffin laid the research foundations for the book's coverage of Western European and North American specimens. The book's discussion of global type specimens and cross-cultural typographic exchange emerged through subsequent research in digital archives. This talk will focus on the design-writing process connected to archival research and writing about design and preview key moments in the book. Type Specimens is forthcoming from Bloomsbury Academic in December 2021.

Since the 19th century, efforts to study social phenomena have been accompanied by the creation of graphic images. From population maps to genealogical diagrams, images have offered ways of representing and constructing so-called “social facts,” transforming numerical data and qualitative observations into pictures that both reflect and construct particular understandings of society.

In the 20th-century United States, graphic designers actively participated in this practice. Working for public and private organizations, they contributed to the dissemination of social scientific information and also borrowed certain aspects of its visual vocabulary— including dots, graphs, and pictograms— for a broader range of applications. In particular, these graphic forms appear in the corporate realm, where they express a sense of social scientific and data-driven authority.

This talk will present evidence of this pattern from across the Cary Graphic Arts Collection’s Graphic Design Archive, tracing habits of representation to show how certain graphic forms moved and morphed between social scientific and corporate contexts in the 20th century.
