The Department of Communication and Media offers many kinds of events, most free and open to the public. We organize and sponsor numerous lectures, workshops and conferences over the course of the academic year. Our programming covers a wide range of topics and features presenters from diverse disciplines and is designed to foster an understanding of the mass media and emerging media.
Our production team – led by GRAMMY-nominated artistic director and composer Pamela Ruiter-Feenstra with award-winning journalists Ana Ávila and María Arce, and athlete Tad DeLuca – co-created new material for Ni une más with survivors. The title is based on a slogan used in many Latin American countries to stand up to domestic violence and femicide. As gender-based violence is a local and global health crisis, we move this often-silenced topic to the spotlight to transform trauma into healing power through the arts.
Ni une más was made possible by a grant from the Arts Initiative at the University of Michigan, and is co-sponsored by the Office of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion; the School of Music, Theatre & Dance’s Research Catalyst and Innovation Grant; The Institute for Research on Women and Gender; the CEW+ Frances & Sydney Lewis Visiting Leaders Fund; Communications & Media; Sexual Assault Prevention and Awareness Center; Sociology; Bethlehem United Church of Christ; and Avalon Healing Center (Detroit).
