Edited by Kristin Fontichiaro, Amy Lennex, Tyler Hoff, Kelly Hovinga, Jo Angela Oehrli
Michigan Publishing Services, 2017
Knowing how to recognize the role data plays in our lives is critical to navigating today’s complex world. In this volume, you’ll find two kinds of professional development tools to support that growth. Part I contains pre-made professional development via links to webinars from the 2016 and 2017 4T Virtual Conference on Data Literacy, along with discussion questions and activities that can animate conversations around data in your school. Part II explores data “in the wild” with case studies pulled from the headlines, along with provocative discussion questions, professionals and students alike can explore multiple perspectives at play with Big Data, data privacy, personal data management, ethical data use, and citizen science.

The Democracy of Objects
Levi R. Bryant
Michigan Publishing Services, 2011
Since Kant, philosophy has been obsessed with epistemological questions pertaining to the relationship between mind and world and human access to objects. In The Democracy of Objects Bryant proposes that we break with this tradition and once again initiate the project of ontology as first philosophy. Drawing on the object-oriented ontology of Graham Harman, as well as the thought Roy Bhaskar, Gilles Deleuze, Niklas Luhman, Aristotle, Jacques Lacan, Bruno Latour and the developmental systems theorists, Bryant develops a realist ontology that he calls “onticology”. This ontology argues that being is composed entirely of objects, properties, and relations such that subjects themselves are a variant of objects. By way of systems theory and cybernetics, Bryant argues that objects are dynamic systems that relate to the world under conditions of operational closure. In this way, he integrates the most vital discoveries of the anti-realists within a realist ontology that does justice to both the material and cultural. Onticology proposes a flat ontology where objects of all sorts and at different scales equally exist without being reducible to other objects and where there are no transcendent entities such as eternal essences outside of dynamic interactions among objects. This work will be of great interest to Continental philosophers, ecologists, cultural theorists, media theorists, and those following recent developments in the thought of speculative realists.

Michigan Publishing Services, 2018

Dialectic seeks to publish scholarship, analytical study and criticism that will enlighten and inform a diverse audience of design educators engaged not only in classroom teaching experiences but also in differing forms of research and professional practice. The journal's advisory and editorial boards recognize that design education, along with design research and professional practice, exist in relationships that are now broadly informed by theoretical frameworks and applications of knowledge derived from the social and applied sciences, the humanities, and other professions such as business, education, information technology and media studies. The outcomes of these synergies often result in the invention, discovery, understanding, and dissemination of new knowledge, innovation, and best practices.

Digital Copyright
Jessica Litman
Michigan Publishing Services, 2017
The general public is used to thinking of copyright (if it thinks of it at all) as marginal and arcane. But copyright is central to our society’s information policy and affects what we can read, view, hear, use, or learn. In 1998 Congress enacted new laws greatly expanding copyright owners’ control over individuals’ private uses of their works. The efforts to enforce these new rights laws have resulted in highly publicized legal battles between established media, including major record labels and motion picture studios, and new upstart internet companies such as MP3.com and Napster.

Jessica Litman questions whether copyright laws crafted by lawyers and their lobbyists really make sense for the vast majority of us. Should every interaction between ordinary consumers and copyright-protected works be restricted by law? Is it practical to enforce such laws, or expect consumers to obey them? What are the effects of such laws on the exchange of information in a free society? Litman’s critique exposes the 1998 copyright law as an incoherent patchwork. She argues for reforms that reflect the way people actually behave in their daily digital interactions.

The Maize Books edition includes both an afterword written in 2006 exploring the rise of peer-to-peer file sharing and a new Postscript reflecting on the consequences of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act as it nears its twentieth birthday.

Diversity Includes Disability
Perspectives on the U-M Council for Disability Concerns
Anna Ercoli Schnitzer and Bonnie A. Dede
Michigan Publishing Services, 2018
The U-M Council for Disability Concerns, established by then-UM President Harold Shapiro in 1983, has never had an official institutional history.  In this Maize Book, the authors present perspectives on the Council from its inception to date. Rather than merely listing dates and facts, the work focuses on selected representative dynamic individuals who provide vibrant descriptions of different aspects of the Council. The intent of including these personal narratives is to portray the inspirational culture and atmosphere that have imbued and grown the Council throughout its existence. 

The Council has changed and enlarged its membership from its origins as a small, low-key group consisting primarily of faculty and staff engaged in the disability arena, to an organization that encompasses a diverse, cross-campus and local community membership, with an extensive mailing list, as well. The achievements of the Council over the years and the goals that it envisions for the future, we hope, will serve as a template for other institutions.

Don MacCallum's Michigan Histology Vol. 1
Stephen C. Kempf
Michigan Publishing Services, 2017
Before he retired, Prof. Donald K. MacCallum put together an extremely useful hands-on histology lab manual that was based on his experience of teaching histology to many generations of University of Michigan students. Unfortunately, that original digital manual was never published and is no longer compatible with today’s computer systems. The authors have updated and revised the original manual as an eBook version that allows histology learners to link the theoretical knowledge acquired in lectures and textbooks with the appearance of cellular microscopic anatomy and organ tissue structure as seen through a light microscope. Starting with a chapter on staining methods and histological artifacts, the four volumes cover the cytology of all basic tissues, organs and organ systems of the human body. Images of superb histological preparations produced by Prof. MacCallum are accompanied by a concise description. New information was added and the labeling of many images was improved to better correlate the appearance of these tissues at the light microscope level with their cellular organization and functions. Brief multiple-choice quizzes at the end of each volume reinforce major learning objectives. “Don MacCallum’s Michigan Histology” helps the beginner, as well as the more experienced student of histology, to navigate and comprehend the complexity of human tissues at the microscopic scale. As the 1st edition of Don MacCallum’s Michigan Histology eBook series was published a few years ago, we felt that updating the original edition would be a timely undertaking. In the second edition, we not only carefully revised the text to clarify it, but also corrected a number of errors.

• 26 chapters covering all basic tissues and major organs/organ systems of human histology
• More than 1100 high quality histological images on 724 pages
• 236 image-based multiple choice review questions
• Volume 1: Introduction, Epithelia, Connective Tissue, Cartilage, Bone, Blood
• Volume 2: Muscle, Nervous System, Eye, Ear, Circulatory System, Lymphatic System
• Volume 3: Respiratory System, Integument, Oral Glands, Oral Cavity, Gastrointestinal Tract, Liver, Gall Bladder & Pancreas
• Volume 4: Endocrine Organs, Urinary System, Male Reproductive System, Female Reproductive System, Mammary Gland

Fifty Years of Dutch and Flemish Studies at the University of Michigan
Ton Broos, Annemarie Toebosch, and Karla Vandersypen
Michigan Publishing Services, 2019

Dutch is Beautiful tells the story of the fifty years of Dutch and Flemish Studies at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA. It is an account of the efforts to promote Dutch and Flemish culture and language, as well as a description of how the teaching of Dutch language, literature, history and culture can be a tool to look at a world of diverse identities. It also offers a comprehensive overview of the beginnings of a successful program that included Dutch writers-in-residence, visiting Netherlands professors, cultural and educational events, arts, music, films, conferences and publications. Several alumni of  the program look back at their college years with appreciation. Articles and essays on history, Anne Frank, and conversations on colonialism discuss critical and educational views on Dutch and Flemish Studies in past, present and future, when diversity, equity and inclusion are important goals and objectives, and public scholarship and academic activism will be a larger part of the curriculum. This book will inform, entertain, stimulate and impress everyone who is interested in the culture of the Low Countries. The title says it all!
