Detroit courses
focus on history,
culture and
community service
By NEALA BERKOWSKI
Daily Staff Reporter
Students registering for
winter term -classes have a
range of opjions for learn-
ing about the city of Detroit
through culture and history
classes, or through community
service programs.
Rebecca Zurier, an associate
professor of art history, who
teaches Made in Detroit: A His-
tory of Art and Culture in the
Motor City, said Detroit has
changed so much recently she
felt it was important to offer
this course and have a discus-
sion about the city with stu-
dents. Her course gives students
insight to trends in modern art,
architecture and history by see-
ing how they were stressed on a
world stage.
"The arts are playing a bigger
and bigger role in this Detroit

r City
that is kind of growing infor-
mally," she said. "The arts are
an important insight into the
city and they have something
to do with its growth, so that's
a good thing to think about in a
classroom with a group of really
committed and interesting stu-
dents."
In the course, which is
cross-listed in art history and
American culture, students
will discuss specific pieces of
art and architecture along with
more general topics including
the story of the Detroit Institute
of Arts during the Detroit bank-
ruptcy trials.
For students interested
in taking classes in Detroit,
Detroiters Speak is a six-week
public mini-course aiming to
give students and the public a
better understanding of his-
toric and contemporary topics
in Detroit. Students listen to a
panel of Detroiters and experts
talk about various topics.

University's Detroit Center are
co-sponsors of the series that is
held weekly at the UM Detroit

Durham's caters
to local, national
clientele with
speciality products
By LINDSEY SCULLEN
Daily StaffReporter
It all started in a bathtub.
Sound fishy? Well, it was.
Hand-crafted smoked salmon
is Durham's Tracklements' spe-

cialty. The business started in
Amherst, Mass. back in 1992,
where Founder of Tracklements
T.R. Durham cured - preserved
with salt, sugar and maybe some
seasoning - salmon in his base-
ment. The bathtub, being a req-
uisite size for salmon, served as
his sink.
Since then, Tracklements has
nixed the bathtub in favor of a
large sink in a small shop in Ker-
rytown, just around the corner
from the farmer's market.
At the sink stands Margarito

Dominguez, a member of the
Tracklements team since 2002.
He's performing a hand-led dry
cure with quick, skilled hands.
Using salt, sugar and sometimes
some seasoning, he's smoothing
the mixture up and down the
fish, applying more to the thick-
er parts and less to the thinner,
Durham explained.
"He's really extremely metic-
ulous," Durham said.
They've also since expanded
from what used to be a holiday-
time service onlyto a year-round

business - open on Tuesdays,
Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fri-
days, Saturdays and by appoint-
ment - that produces and sells
smoked salmon varieties and has
further filled in its repertoire
with other fishes, meats and
cheeses.
Tracklements moved from
Amherst to Ann Arbor in 1996
when Susan Douglas, Durham's
wife, got a job at the University.
She's currently a professor and

Black Law Student
Association calls
attention to grand
jury decisions
By ALLANA AKHTAR
Daily Staff Reporter
Students and faculty gath-
ered on the Law Quadrangle
Friday afternoon to show their

solidarity with protestors
across the country who are ral-
lying for justice in the killings
of two unarmed Black men at
the hands of police.
Recent protests were
spurred nationwide by a grand
jury's decision last month not
to indict the Ferguson, Mis-
souri police officer who fatally
shot teenager Michael Brown.
Protests continued this week
after a New York grand jury
decided not to charge the offi-

cer that killed 43-year-old Eric
Garner while holding him in a
chokehold.
On the Law Quad, partici-
pants were photographed dis-
playing the "hands up, don't
shoot" gesture that has become
a symbol of the movement
nationwide. They also laid -on
the ground in the Law Library
for four and a half minutes in
a staged "die-in," intended to
represent the number of hours
