With the “Hear, Here” series, we aim to facilitate conversations around new research in the humanities. Faculty fellows at the Institute for the Humanities will discuss a part of their current project in a short talk followed by a Q & A session. Today: “The Right to Be Different: 21st Century Citizenship in Dearborn, Michigan” with Sally Howell.

About this talk:
As Arab Muslims become the majority population in Dearborn, Michigan, and assume leadership of local government, residents struggle to find a shared language in which to discuss their contests over space, religious heritage, and the public image of the city itself. This talk will explore the cultural, political, and aesthetic spheres through which Arab Americans are actively renegotiating their right to be different in Dearborn.

About Sally Howell:
Sally Howell is a 2022-23 John Rich Faculty Fellow at the Institute for the Humanities and associate professor, history, U-M Dearborn.
