This public history exhibit is presented by the History Department and the Eisenberg Institute for Historical Studies at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. It is part of the larger initiative called Michigan in the World: Local and Global Stories (or MITW). The website displays the research conducted by undergraduate students about the history of the University of Michigan and its relationship to events at the local, state, national, and global levels. As we approach the 200th anniversary of the University of Michigan, this is an endeavor of reconstruction, reflection, and communication, which is carried out collaboratively by faculty and students. The Michigan in the World project, we hope, will lay the foundations for a critical appraisal of our university’s trajectories and reach out to a variety of constituencies, in the spirit of public history.
