UW-Madison freshman Elliott Puckette, who attended the July program on “Shakespeare’s Plays and Poems,” was impressed by its unpretentious approach.
“In his lecture, Prof. Calhoun emphasized the value of engaging with old works of literature collaboratively, treating them respectfully without locking them behind glass never to be touched or reinterpreted,” Puckette says. “By letting people connect with the past in a physical, tactile way, the Holding History program encourages everyone, not just ‘the experts,’ to engage the past on a personal level. Sharing knowledge should be the aim of any educational institution, and it is to UW-Madison’s credit that it has chosen to share its resources with the greater community.”
