Each year, the Great World Texts program holds its annual Student Conference, where high school students from around the state gather to present projects on the year's common read. We also host an annual colloquium for teachers preparing to teach the Great World Texts book every year.
In the spring of 2014, the Center for the Humanities held its seventh annual Public Humanities Conference, a forum for discussions and workshops between public humanities scholars and the community groups they engage, study, and serve.
Other Conferences we have hosted include:
Fall 2009: "What is Human" Conference
Spring 2003: "The Souls of Black Folk" Centennial
Fall 2002: "Rembrandt and the Jews" Symposium
Launched in 2005 by the Center for the Humanities at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Great World Texts in Wisconsin connects scholars at UW-Madison with high school teachers and students across the state through the shared project of reading and discussing a classic piece of world literature.
