Humanities students looking for Green Bay Packers fans to interview

Calling fans of the green and gold! UW-Green Bay students are seeking Green Bay Packers fans to interview and record experiences about game memories, family traditions, tailgating, divided households and how they celebrate the Green Bay Packers in their daily lives. This semester, students in Digital and Public Humanities courses taught by UW-Green Bay Associate Prof. Heidi Sherman (History) and Brent Hensel, the curator for the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame, are working on projects focused on the history of the Green Bay Packers. One of the projects involves sharing the stories of Green Bay Packers fans through oral history interviews. Deb Anderson, campus archivist, is working with the class to collect the stories and preserve them in the UW-Green Bay oral history collection.

“Books and films tell the story of the players, coaches, teams and games of the Green Bay Packers,” noted Anderson. “Little is written about the unique experience of being a super-fan, and we want to change that by capturing the voices of fans.”

Nominate a faculty/staff friend, or if you are willing to participate in the next few weeks in a brief interview of approximately 30 to 45 minutes, please contact Deb Anderson at andersod@uwgb.edu.
