Poetics Description & Curriculum

While it is uncommon to discuss poetics in the context of a business environment, poetics are everywhere in business.  Watchmakers in Geneva privilege the handmade mechanical watch as a source of national pride.  Artists and artisans work diligently on their wares, and at every moment, the value-added of a resource is often intangible, or more than the sum of its parts.  For this reason, the value of handmade goods, particularly in the global economy, requires more attention than it has previously received. To select populations that as a result of globalization and the increase of mechanized labor have had their traditional, ancestral, or creative production rendered vulnerable, projects with a focus on female, indigenous, and/or refugee populations are a priority.

The poetics project is interested in coordinating rigorous program development surrounding the development of handmade goods in the global political economy. Students from all over UNM from various disciplines are welcome to participate in what is becoming a sterling program in arts management informed by world-class interdisciplinary study. Every student who is part of the poetics project is trained to appreciate both the policy/management-driven aspects of the art world, but also the deeply complicated and delicate questions of value for the handmade good. As the political economy evolves at a near incomprehensible rate, these questions are more relevant than ever. We plan to foster leadership in sustainability through the arts in 21st century global civil society and beyond.
