In this 8-week course, Detroiters Speak Pandemic Politics - From Lockdown to Liberation, students will learn about the city from listening to and engaging with its people through a virtual public class. The theme for the Winter 2021 series is still in development. This community classroom (anyone is welcome to attend classes) is connected to the UM Semester in Detroit program and is a collaboration with the General Baker Institute and Wayne State University faculty.

This class will be offered remotely and will feature public discussions with Detroiters moderated by University of Michigan and Wayne State University staff and 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.

Course dates/times: February 3, 10, 17, March 3, 20, 24, 31, and April 7

Class Format:

The course will be offered entirely online; meeting dates and speakers TBA
