Despite the hand-wringing over the disappearance of local and regional cultures throughout the United States, many traditions and folkways are very much alive and well. One rather distinctive organization that studies and documents these traditions is the Center for the Study of Upper Midwestern Cultures at the University of Wisconsin. Drawing on the strengths of the University and their knowledge resources, the website created by the Center contains virtual exhibits, photo galleries, and access to their biannual newsletter on regional culture. The exhibits are quite delightful, and include those that address the bread traditions of Wisconsin and German-American music. The News & Events section of the site is a good place to learn about upcoming lectures, talks, and outreach efforts sponsored by the Center.
