Michigan in the World features exhibitions of research conducted by undergraduate students about the history of the University of Michigan and its relationships beyond its borders. The project was made possible through funding from the University of Michigan History Department and the Eisenberg Institute for Historical Studies, with additional support from Lisa and Timothy J. Sloan. The Divestment for Humanity team consists of:
Emily Bodden is a recent graduate with a degree in Sociology and a minor in the History of Medicine and Health from the University of Michigan. Her interests in resource disparities and issues of social justice motivated her to take the course.
Mario Goetz is a recent graduate from the University of Michigan with degrees in History and Social Theory and Practice. His interests in the development of social movements and issues involving the dynamics of race and class in society were a perfect fit for this course.
