Join the Bentley Historical Library for this Making Michigan conversation with archivists Nancy Bartlett and Sarah McLusky about the gendered spaces of the Michigan League and Michigan Union. You’ll learn how the architects achieved their vision of separate spaces for men and women; why students and alumni/ae envisioned these buildings as their clubhouses—rather than the University’s; and how these iconic destinations served as the backdrop for rituals and relaxation, from formal dances to solitary study. Archival photographs, architectural drawings, and other memorabilia will illustrate the lecture, with discussion of how these items are used in current classes for learning about the history of campus culture. The session will be moderated by Gary Krenz of the Bentley Historical Library.
