Since 2015, Holding History, a public humanities program at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, has introduced intergenerational audiences to the history of media & book arts. We host an annual slate of collaborative special events & interactive experiences—from hands-on papermaking workshops on campus mall to science-fair-style events in rare book libraries where students invite audiences to turn the pages of centuries-old books.
Our events & digital content, which seek to connect the history of media to the arts & crafts of bookmaking, are accessible, public-facing opportunities for exploration, interaction, & discovery.
