Food fills our bellies, brings families and cultures together and is the center of many traditions which remind us of our shared past.  Food also is a source of power and struggle.

"Food for Thought," the theme of the spring Fairhaven Lecture Series, will examine whether we eat simply for sustenance or whether there is more to think about this everyday activity. 

The next lecture is March 11 - "The Flavor of Wisconsin: An Informal History of Food and Eating in the Badger State" by Liz Hachten, assistant dean of the College of Letters and Sciences.

All of the lectures will begin at 3 p.m. on Mondays in the Fellowship Hall of the Fairhaven Retirement Community, 435 W. Starin Road, Whitewater.


Doug McAdam on campus

Doug McAdam, a sociology professor at Stanford University, will explore the history and value of youth movements in the next Contemporary Issues Series lecture.

The event, titled "The Civic Impact of Youth Voluntarism: The Curious Contrast between Freedom Summer and Teach for America," is Monday, March 11, at 7 p.m. in the Young Auditorium.


prison voices: UW-Whitewater authors explore unique writing perspectives at national book reading and benefit

As university faculty members, Erin Celello and Ann Wertz Garvin are more than familiar with student writing and perspectives.

Later this month, these professors will embark on a literary journey to Boston to experience writing from an entirely different group of people - prisoners.
