The Michigan Daily highlighted three classes in the Department of American Culture in their Winter 2014 recommendations of "Interesting Courses" for students to take.  Each semester the student editors of the Daily select what they believe to be "the most interesting, quirky, and unusual classes" available for enrollment each term." This term, they gave shout-outs to AMCULT 204: "Spies, Sex and Sci-Fi:: Cold War Culture" taught by Penny Von Eschen; AMCULT 205/UC 250: "Genes and Society: A Global View" taught by Alex Stern; and AMCULT 235/ARABAM 235/WOMENSTD 235 "From Harems to Terrorists: Representing the Middle East in Hollywood Cinema" taught by Evelyn Alsultany.

They also featured American Culture PhD graduate Margot Finn's course, "Much Depends on Dinner," a course recently featured in the University Record.
