The Power of Place-Naming: C.C. Little, Eugenics, and the University of Michigan

C.C. Little Building (CC-BY-SA-3.0, Michael Barera)

This roundtable explores the potential renaming of the C.C. Little Building at the University of Michigan. Little was University President from 1925 to 1929. He also was an avowed eugenicist who supported policies such as compulsory sterilization of the “unfit” and immigration restriction. Little was instrumental in organizing the Third Race Betterment Conference held in Battle Creek in 1928. Forty years later, the U-M regents voted to bestow his name on the East Medical Building as part of a broader effort to recognize previous university presidents.

Copyright and Publishing Contracts

Which terms of your publishing agreement might you want to negotiate? How? When you’re working on behalf of a publisher, what terms do you seek? Explore these and other questions about publishing contracts in a workshop hosted by the U-M Library Copyright Office. After a brief overview of negotiation techniques and the law in this area, participants will negotiate mock publishing contracts. The group will then reconvene to debrief those negotiations. All are welcome.
