The Brothers Karamazov in Wisconsin

2008-2009

The Brothers Karamazov in Wisconsin built upon the success of the previous Great World Texts in Wisconsin programs. During the 2008-2009 academic year, high school and college classes from across the state participated in reading The Brothers Karamazov, by Fyodor Dostoevsky. Instructors benefited from workshops and curriculum building exercises, and students gathered on the UW-Madison campus in the spring of 2009 to present their artistic, literary, and historical projects on the novel.
