The Third Humanities Biennial: The Future of Folk

April 14-23, 2005

Future of Folk Graphic What happens to traditional culture in a hyper-mediated age-a time in which authenticity is open to debate, the market rules, and folk traditions are transformed by new cultural practices? The Future of Folk will be a ten-day, public exploration of this question, as well as a celebration of music, art, and community. Featuring UW-Madison folklorists and a wide range of scholars, writers, musicians, artists, and organizational partners, the Center's third Humanities Biennial will build on the success of Jane Austen in the 21st Century (2001) and W.E.B. Du Bois and the Souls of Black Folk (2003). The Future of Folk is produced in partnership with the Center for the Study of Upper Midwestern Cultures. More information, a list of confirmed participants, and a complete program schedule are available on The Center for the Humanities website.
