  • The history of students, from ancient to contemporary

    For as long as there has been human knowledge, there have been teachers and students. And while knowledge has evolved, some of the core qualities of effective students have remained constant. We talk to the author of a new book about the history of students and what unites them across time and space.

  • Exhibit showcasing diverse experiences of infertility comes to Milwaukee

    Infertility is classified as a disease and a disability, but it’s also a profoundly personal experience for the one in six people around the world who are affected by it. A new month-long exhibit coming to Whitefish Bay seeks to bring diverse stories and artwork about infertility and IVF (in vitro fertilization) to Wisconsin.
