A native of Tehran, Iran, Brooklyn-based artist Orkideh Torabi explores the intersection of personal narratives, Iranian heritage, and social norms through art.
The University of Michigan is located on the territory of the Anishinaabe people. In 1817, the Ojibwe, Odawa, and Bodewadami Nations made the largest single land transfer to the University of Michigan, ceded in the Treaty of Fort Meigs, so that their children could be educated. We acknowledge the history of native displacement that allowed the University of Michigan to be founded. Today we reaffirm contemporary and ancestral Anishinaabek ties to the land and their profound contributions to this institution.
The Institute for the Humanities
At the Institute for the Humanities, we organize programs that examine and interrogate humanities traditions broadly across space and time. We aim to deepen synergies among the humanities, the arts, and disciplines across the university, and to bring the insights of the humanities to public life.
We strive to support our students and faculty on the front lines of learning and research and to steward our planet, our community, our campus. To do this, Institute for the Humanities needs your support.
