Two one-week workshops for 50 community college faculty to study corporate, labor, and cultural history through primary sources and visits to the River Rouge Plant and nearby sites.

Henry Ford Community College will conduct two one-week workshops (for 25 participants each) on "The Rouge Plant, Henry Ford, and Manufacturing History, 1917-2005." The basic daily schedule will include morning workshops presented by guest scholars, followed by a tour of a relevant site, a research session, and a seminar. The participants will be community college faculty. The tours will take them not only to principal settings of material culture (such as the Ford Roge Plant and the Detroit Industry Murals of Diego Rivera), but also to major archival sources (such as the Walter Reuther and the Benson Ford libraries). Visiting scholars and presenters include accomplished specialists in the fields of corporate, labor, and cultural history.
