Public History First Year Seminar and Summer Internship Program

The expansion of a public humanities Arab American history and culture seminar and internship program for first-year undergraduates at the University of Michigan, Dearborn.

This project will create a First Year Seminar and Summer Research Internship designed to introduce our youngest students to public humanities approaches to the study of Arab American history and culture; engage diverse (and traditionally underserved) populations within the Arab and Muslim communities of metropolitan Detroit in critical conversations with our faculty, students, and visiting scholars; organize an annual public symposium featuring state-of-the-art research by leading scholars, an annual student research project, and an annual public symposium reporting student work back to the communities and scholars with whom they have collaborated; produce quality research that will contribute to scholarship, archival collections, museum exhibitions, project websites, local media productions, and other publicly accessible works on Arab and Muslim communities with Michigan-based humanities institutions.
