The first semester begins with a brief outline of textiles used in different regions going back to the Bronze Age, but mainly picks up in the seventeenth century. The content covers regional processes, like resist dyeing and block printing in India, and focuses on technical advances in textile production, printing, dyeing, etc, aligned with the industrial age. The second semester focuses more on historical and critical analysis of the social and political contexts influencing decorative arts and design, including several pages on the Arts & Crafts movement, William Morris and socialism.
