Constructing Gender: The Origins of the Michigan League and Michigan Union
In this event, you’ll learn why the Union and League were designed as highly gendered spaces and how the architects achieved their vision of separate spaces for men and women.

You’ll discover why students and alumni/ae envisioned these buildings as their clubhouses—rather than the University’s—and how grassroots efforts across the country led to advocating and fundraising for the buildings’ construction.

Finally, you’ll learn 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.
