Disneyland influence on America not so daffy

The Henry Ford and the Museum Studies Program are partnering on a unique day-long conference dedicated to the influence of Disneyland with "Behind the Magic: The Influence and Impact of Walt Disney and Disneyland," from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Nov. 11 in the Henry Ford Museum's Anderson Theater.

The event will bring together for the first time scholars, curators and leadership from the Walt Disney Company's own Imagineering staff to discuss Disney and his contribution to the American landscape. The symposium coincides with "Behind the Magic: 50 Years of Disneyland," an exhibit at The Henry Ford.

Registration fee is $35 for members of The Henry Ford and U-M faculty and staff and $42 for non-members. Student tickets are $19. The registration fee includes Henry Ford Museum admission and access to the special "Behind the Magic" exhibit. Box lunches are available for $11 when ordered with registration.

U-M diversity exhibit goes on the road again

The free exhibit "A Case About Diversity: The Affirmative Action Lawsuits at the University of Michigan," can be viewed now through Dec. 3 on the third floor of the Detroit Main Library, 5201 Woodward, one block north of Warren in midtown Detroit, before it makes its way around the state into 2006.

"This is an important educational exhibit presenting the historical context of affirmative action in higher education as well as the current issues," says Marvin Krislov, U-M vice president and general counsel. "We hope everyone will see it to get a better understanding of the issues and participate in the debate."

In both of the affirmative action cases, the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the principle that gives colleges and universities the freedom to consider race as one of many factors in admissions decisions. The exhibit chronicles the historic decisions.

Trombones shine in Nov. 10 recital

The infrequently celebrated trombone takes center stage at 8 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 10 in the McIntosh Theatre in the School of Music as students of Professor David Jackson participate in a Trombone Ensemble Recital.

The concert will include performances by soloists, quartets and the U-M Trombone Ensemble performing works by Gabrieli, Pfautsch, Poulenc and Saint-Saens.

The Trombone Ensemble will be joined by local high school trombonists at the free concert.
