Did you know that, in celebration of our bicentennial, the University of Michigan is going to send a time capsule into space to orbit the earth for a hundred years? Want to be part of the team that decides what goes into the time capsule? This course will be dedicated to generating the list of objects and documents that will go into space and then come back to Michigan to convey a sense of the University and its values to the class of 2117. This course will be part history, part contemporary archeology, and part material culture studies. It will be a non-traditional course in that the end product will be a collectively generated list of contents for the time capsule but it will also involve considerable research and a great deal of writing.
