History of the Center (2018)

The Center for 21st Century Studies, formerly the Center for 20th Century Studies, is one of the oldest humanities centers in the United States. Founded in 1968 at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, the Center has a long legacy of creating and imagining the fields of 20th and 21st century studies to come. This short video takes a look back at the history of the Center and features interviews with Richard Grusin (Center Director), Jane Gallop (Distinguished Professor of English, UWM), and Nigel Rothfels (Director of Undergraduate Research, UWM) as well as various flyers, photographs, and artifacts found in the Center archives.
