This event is open to the public and we hope to see you there!The Douglas Schewe Award is awarded each year to a student deemed to have produced the best seminar or research paper during the previous academic year. Douglas Schewe taught reading and English at Madison Area Technical College for 23 years until his retirement in 1993. He was also a collector of art and a familiar presence in our art history classrooms for many years, often engaging in penetrating discussions with professors in person, or by letter. In donating the funds, he specified that the paper should be “based on a plausible premise, supported by reason and logic, open to evidence and willingly discussing with academic objectivity, and criticism with those (scholars) having different points of view.”
