With an accomplished background, including a Ph.D. in U.S. history, a minor in Folklore, and an author of books on LaFollette and Proxmire, your instructor will bring a unique perspective to this course that examines two extraordinary episodes in Wisconsin’s political history. In week one, we look at the social and economic conflicts that sank the first attempt to write a state constitution in 1846, delaying statehood at a critical time in American history. During week two, we examine the era of “Fighting Bob” La Follette when Wisconsin gained a national reputation as a “laboratory of democracy,” developing progressive reforms that reshaped state and national government.
