The Spring 2024 issue of LSA Magazine has hit the newsstands (or at least the campus mail) and we're very excited to browse through two different stories featuring American Culture students and faculty! 


More than a story takes us through the art exhibit in Detroit that our grad student, Lily Jiale Chen, curated to "“...engage people my age or younger to think critically about the generations of people that paved the way for us. Growing up in a suburb of Detroit, as a second-generation Chinese immigrant, it took me a long time to see past my parents’ hardship. I faced so much racism that it almost prevented me from seeing the longer history, and how much I owe to older generations,” Chen says. “This exhibit is my love letter, my chance to say thank you.” The story also features faculty members Ian Shin and Roland Hwang who supported Chen throughout the project. 


At Sundown tours us throught the Sundown Town Project, run by AC faculty Stephen Berrey and a team of students. 

"“We want to tell the truth about the past and provide a space to grapple with these hard histories. It’s the key first step towards thinking about how to create welcoming, inclusive communities in the present.” says, Prof. Stephen Berrey.
