Theme Semester

Detroit 300 Theme Semester
Fall Academic Term 2001


Theme Semester Website


In 2001, Detroit will celebrate its 300th birthday. The anniversary commemorates Cadillac's arrival at the straits with a party of 100 French soldiers and adventurers. The University of Michigan, as its contribution to the 300-celebrations and as a means of bringing together and making visible the considerable scholarly work and service learning being done on Detroit and the on-going involvement of UM faculty, students, and programs in the city, has organized the Detroit 300 Theme Semester.

Sponsored by the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts with additional help from the Arts of Citizenship Program, the Edward Ginsberg Center for Community and Service Learning, and the University Library this campus-wide effort will focus on Detroit through courses, symposia, exhibitions, and cultural events.

Public Presentations: Symposia. As part of the Theme Semester a number of public symposia will be held, involving UM faculty, visiting scholars, and Detroiters, focusing on contemporary issues (education, public health, gender and race). These will serve as resources for various courses connected with the Theme Semester.

Exhibitions and Displays. The University Library, the Michigan Historical Collections at the Bentley Library, the Labadie Collection, the Francis W. Kelsey Museum of Archaeology, and the William L. Clements Library have large holdings of materials pertaining to historical and contemporary Detroit which will be used for exhibitions and displays around campus during the Theme Semester. The RC Art Gallery will hold a retrospective exhibit on Pewabic pottery.

Artistic and Theatrical Performances on Campus. During the Theme Semester, various cultural activities, performances, and artistic exhibits from the Detroit area will be brought to Ann Arbor. There will also be a series of films for the Ann Arbor community about Detroit.

Going to Detroit: Under the auspices of the Theme Semester, there will be numerous opportunities for UM students to go to Detroit, for cultural events, to study something, or to do service.
