Primary Instructor:

In this 8-week course, Detroiters Speak, students will learn about the city’s history and culture from its people. A free university shuttle will bring students to the U-M Detroit center, where they will attend public discussions with Detroiters moderated by University of Michigan faculty. Each week, brief required readings from newspapers and other sources will provide students with an introduction to each topic, so they may post thoughtful questions for moderators and guests to consider. Students will reflect on each speaker presentation in a short blog post to CTools and in a discussion-based final presentation at the end of the course.

Specific Objectives:

  • Explore Detroit’s history and culture through text, dialogue, music, and visual and oral storytelling.
  • Pose, reflect on, and discuss critical questions or observations about the dynamic City of Detroit.
