Description

Cap Times Idea Fest

The Cap Times celebrates its 100th anniversary this year by presenting its inaugural two-day ideas festival on the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus. Some two dozen individual sessions about politics, education, equity, the economy and culture will explore the central theme of how to “Reach a Better State.”

Attendees will get to hear and interact with big names, prominent authors, faculty stars and on-the-ground experts — a fascinating, fast-paced experience at UW's Discovery Building, Gordon Center and Union South.

Schedule and seating

  • The full program and schedule will be announced later in August, but confirmed speakers include Barry Alvarez, Tammy Baldwin, Martin Baron, Deb Carey, Kevin Conroy, Charles Franklin, Howard Fuller, Amy Klobuchar, Gloria Ladson-Billings, David Maraniss, Gwen Moore, John Nygren, Mark Pocan, Charlie Sykes and Tommy Thompson.
