On Friday, April 28, at 7:30 p.m. and Saturday, April 29, at 2:00 p.m., a student performance of AFTER/LIFE will take place in the RCAH Theater.

AFTER/LIFE commemorates Detroit's 1967 rebellion and tells the story of its aftermath from the perspectives of the overlooked thousands of women and girls who chased police, lit fires, threw bricks, shoplifted, and much more. Conceived and written by Lisa Biggs, assistant professor at the MSU Residential College in the Arts and Humanities, AFTER/LIFE is an original performance that braids together oral histories, theater, poetry, and dance to challenge popular misconceptions about why 12th Street residents rose up to burn their city down. Audiences will learn what really motivated the unrest, and about the determination of Detroit's women and girls' to rebuild their city and their lives after.

Performances are free and open to the public. Age 8+.

MSU's Office of Study Abroad (OSA) has partnered with International Studies Abroad (ISA) to provide funding to support the establishment of MSU faculty-directed education abroad programs. Funding may be awarded for either a course that embeds an international education travel component into a fall or spring residential course or a program to be offered during the summer or winter break. The proposal must relate to an existing or new program that will be offered in conjunction with ISA's Custom Programs Division (http://cp.studiesabroad.com/). Preference will be given to programs that are designed to promote OSA's goals for diversifying education abroad programming (see evaluation criteria below). The promise of some departmental matching funds (e.g., cash or in-kind contributions) is strongly encouraged, but not required.

For 2017-18, one $20,000 Program Development Grant will be awarded to a sponsoring department/college, of which up to $2,000 may be used to support a faculty member or instructor to travel to an established ISA program site for a short-term stay (less than 1 week) for the primary purpose of establishing the proposed education abroad program. Otherwise, all funds will be awarded via ISA as a credit to the total cost of the program, thus reducing the overall participation cost for MSU students. Individual applicants must be serving in a representative capacity of their home academic unit. (The Grant will be offered again in 2018-19.)

Questions, applications, and supporting materials should be sent to Dr. Inge Steglitz, Associate Director, Office of Study Abroad, steglitz(at)msu.edu.
