book cover from The Flood Year
U-M Professor of English Susan Parrish reads from her new book, The Flood Year 1927: A Cultural History, followed by discussion with U-M Professor of History Perrin Selcer, and then audience Q & A. The Great Mississippi Flood of 1927 was the most destructive river flood in U.S. history, and the first environmental disaster to be experienced on a mass scale. The Flood Year 1927 draws from newspapers, radio broadcasts, political cartoons, vaudeville, blues songs, poetry, and fiction to show how this event took on public meanings.

In 1869 the University of Michigan opened the first hospital in the United States to be owned and operated by a university. Professor Joel Howell (History, Internal Medicine, and Health Management and Policy; University of Michigan) will discuss the debates over whether the University of Michigan should run a hospital, who should run it, what should be in it, why the university decided to keep the hospital in Ann Arbor, and what difference these decisions have made to medical research, education, and patient care in Ann Arbor and elsewhere.
