The Auto Industry: Journals from Detroit

My students have now a cumulative 150+ blog posts on the auto industry, plus 13 separate journals from our visits to firms and other events around Detroit. There are also scattered notes from our readings (Bill Vlasic's Once Upon a Car, Rudi Volti's classic industry intro, Cars and Culture, Tom Wolfe's The kandy-kolored tangerine-flake streamline baby and John Heitmann - Rebecca Morales' just-published Stealing Cars. Since I need to read and comment on what my students do, that's taken priority over generating new content here. I will repost roughly one post per student over the course of the summer, but take a look for yourself! You can find our Detroit schedule here and journals and all that as obvious when you visit the site.
