Fall 2016 Resources
The Original Class:
Join us during the Fall of 2016 for an experiment. “FORWARD? The Wisconsin Idea, Past and Present” is a new course offering in the Department of Sociology at the University of Wisconsin – Madison. The course combines a small undergraduate seminar with a public lecture series that examines the University of Wisconsin’s relationship with the people of the state. We examine our origins, from the birth of the university in 1849, a year following the birth of Wisconsin as a state in 1848. We explore our successes and failures along the way. In fifteen weeks we merely scratch the surface of suitable topics.
