UW-Whitewater’s Fairhaven Lecture Series continues this spring. Join us, online, won’t you?

(UW-Whitewater submission) Since 1983, faculty experts from UW-Whitewater have been presenting free public lectures on topics from art and history to current events and influential people. Join us online this spring, as we travel, virtually, through space and time.

Traveling came to an abrupt halt in 2020, but virtual journeys through time and across the world can take place through the experiences of others. Join us as we visit Louis XIV’s France; travel with students and faculty to Asia, the Caribbean and Latin America; and examine the impact of (and by) those who immigrate to the U.S.  Stay safe at home this spring, while exploring our world through the experiences of our fellow global citizens.
