Holding History is a student-driven public humanities program focused on the history of media and book arts.
Since 2015, at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Holding History has introduced intergenerational audiences to book objects, historical media, and special collections archives. 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.
