The Visiting Scholars Program (VSP) lecture series brings distinguished critical scholars and activists from around the world to the University of Wisconsin-Madison to deliver lectures in virtual and in-person settings. The VSP series enriches the campus and community in several ways. Scholars speak with expertise on a wide range of topics, very often presenting the findings of recently conducted original research. Havens Wright Center lectures are also sites of cross-disciplinary discussion among faculty and students, and they provide a context in which people from the broader community can participate in intellectually stimulating programs with scholars and activists. The Center maintains an extensive archive of audio and digital video recordings of past lectures on our website.
