Fall Term, 1993 Theme Semester

"Working in a Multicultural Society: The Changing Face of Labor"

In Fall '93, the Program in American Culture will be the host department of the "Working in a Multicultural Society: The Changing Face of Labor" Theme Semester. This theme semester takes advantage of the UM's many resources from this campus and others and brings together a broad spectrum of scholars, staff, students, workers, and members of the community to offer courses that integrate examinations of labor and work with a study of everyday life and culture in the U.S. The semester connects courses and faculty from various disciplines and departments throughout the UM to rethink how our curriculum addresses labor, work, and working-class issues. Below is a list of courses being offered for the semester to date. More courses will almost certainly be added.
