CEIS Professor Celebrates Book Debut


For six years, Maya Stovall, assistant professor of liberal studies, staged “Liquor Store Theatre,” a conceptual art and anthropology video project in which she danced near the liquor stores in her Detroit neighborhood as a way to start conversations. In her new book of the same name, Stovall uses the project as a point of departure for understanding everyday life in Detroit and the possibilities for ethnographic research, art and knowledge creation.
