Schedule a meeting with the History Department Events Admin Team. Fall 2020 History Department Events Policy As of Friday, June 26th, 2020, the UW-Madison has not announced plans for fall events under the Smart Restart program. With previously small classes needing larger rooms and some classes moving to evening and Saturday morning time slots, events space on campus will be limited if not completely unavailable. Additionally, many attendees may have concerns about their physical health and whether in-person events would be accessible to them. Therefore, the Department of History has decided that all department sponsored events must take place in a virtual format during the fall 2020 semester. Please take care to plan your event accordingly, and reach out to the History Department Events Team if you have any questions or concerns. To receive department administrative assistance with your event, you will need to submit the Request for Department Administrative Event Support form, which has been updated to provide options for virtual events. Please note that, as with in-person events, the event organizer is responsible for all planning and coordination related to their event, even if staff support is provided. Please note: Submission of this form does not guarantee that you will receive any or all of the requested support. Support will vary based on the time available to plan and complete the requested tasks, as well as the previously agreed-upon support from the Department Chair. Forms submitted well in advance of the date of the event are more likely to receive support.
