Sifting & Reckoning Facilitated Exhibition Tour (CANCELED)
December 7, 2022 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm
The event described below has been canceled. We apologize for any inconvenience. Please contact Honors at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions.
Please consider joining L&S Honors Program students as they participate in a facilitated tour of one of the most highly anticipated exhibits in recent years at the Chazen Museum of Art, located in the heart of the UW campus. The UW-Madison Public History Project is a multi-year effort to uncover and give voice to the histories of racism, discrimination, and resistance at the university. Spanning over 150 years, Sifting & Reckoning: UW–Madison’s History of Exclusion and Resistance brings to light stories of struggle and perseverance. Using archival materials, photographs, and oral histories spanning more than 150 years of history, the exhibit and other project materials will bring to light stories of struggle, perseverance, and resistance on campus.
L&S Honors students will gather at Information Desk just inside the museum on the ground floor at 5:00 PM. Once there, representatives from the UW-Madison Public History Project will meet with L&S Honors Students to discuss the exhibit and prime students for what they are about to experience. Students will then have the freedom to experience the exhibit on a self-guided or small group basis. We recommend planning for about one hour to walk through all of the content. There may be an optional group activity for Honors students at the conclusion of the experience!
