About This Item: 
Published to weave together the untold stories of The New School's legacy Illustrated with over 400 images from the School's archive A Drama in Time is an illustrative and beautifully designed mosaic narrative that weaves together the many histories of one of America's most progressive universities. Founded by political dissidents in 1919, the School has become a byword for academic freedom and progressive thought. Now encompassing five schools, including Parsons School of Design, The New School is a center for notable designers, writers, musicians, artists and political activists. The book design is reflective of the change-making, status-quo pushing attitude of the school: dynamic and unexpected while remaining elegant. Contents: A character study of a university and a fresh take on the classic hero's journey, the book is a non-linear collection of stories designed to live on their own, and as a whole to give the reader an understanding of The New School's legacy and vision. Each story contains a mix of a title, body copy, photos with captions, pull-out quotes by recognizable members of our community, historical and modern courses, and related events/happenings/publications that cross time periods and schools. The Festival of New: 1-6 October 2019. The book will be launched during a campus-wide Festival open to the public celebrating the school's Centennial with talks, performances, exhbitions, parties and more.
