Welcome to American Culture
Celebrating 80 Years of American Culture
As the oldest program in American studies in the country, we have educated generations of Wolverines about the changing meanings of US citizenship and national belonging.
American Culture started with a small, but dedicated, coalition of faculty and students who volunteered their time and intellectual talents. They eschewed traditional academic disciplinary boundaries for new scholarly conversations about what it has meant to be "American." Over the years, we have grown and matured into an unmatched center for understanding the nation’s ever increasing diversity and global connections. Today, we are the top American studies department in the world. Our students and faculty are uniquely committed to social justice and the highest standards of scholarship. We are proud, too, to be home to ethnic studies programs at Michigan: Asian/Pacific Islander American Studies, Arab and Muslim American Studies, Latina/o Studies, and Native American Studies.
