You are invited to join the U.W.-Madison SIFTING AND WINNOWING CLUB! You don't have to be a student - anyone interested in helping the University live up to its "sifting and winnowing" mission can join.
The University of Wisconsin-Madison SIFTING AND WINNOWING CLUB aims to foster research, dialogue and debate on the most significant controversial issues. We are students, faculty, alumni, and other members of the University community who oppose all forms of censorship, whether tacit or explicit; support academic freedom in its broadest form; and wish to see the University of Wisconsin live up to its motto: "Whatever may be the limitations which trammel inquiry elsewhere, we believe that the great State University of Wisconsin should ever encourage that continual and fearless sifting and winnowing by which alone the truth can be found."
Membership is free. No commitment necessary. By joining, all you are doing is saying that you support the mission statement. Note that we may contact you from time to time with event information; if you ever decide you do not wish to be contacted, just say "leave me alone!" and we will.
To join, simply send an email to UWsifting(at)gmail(dot)com telling us you want to join, or cut and paste from the coupon below:
_____ YES! I SUPPORT FEARLESS SIFTING AND WINNOWING AND WANT TO JOIN.
_____ NO, I THINK SIFTING AND WINNOWING IS TOO DANGEROUS, AND THAT IF IT IS ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY, IT SHOULD BE DONE FEARFULLY, FURTIVELY AND FECKLESSLY.
