Kudos: Finlayson and faculty promotions

Caitlin Finlayson, associate professor of English, interviewed author Emily St. John Mandel as part of the Michigan Humanities Council’s “Great Michigan Read” events on May 11 on the University Michigan-Dearborn campus. Mandel discussed her new best-seller “Station Eleven,” the story of a troupe of traveling Shakespearean actors in post-apocalyptic Michigan. The novel uses Shakespeare to explore how culture, art, and theater defines and preserves our humanity, especially in desperate times.
