A group of University of Wisconsin-Fox Valley students and Dr. Renee Gralewicz, UW-Fox anthropology and American Indian studies professor, recently attended the Nobel Conference 52 “In Search of Economic Balance.”

The students traveled with local community members and educators to the conference held at Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter, Minn., where economists discussed the challenges facing real world implementation of economic theories.

“The Nobel Conference is an exceptional experience to share with students as we explore topics together,” said Dr. Gralewicz. “The speakers’ presentations are lively, entertaining, and thought provoking. It is a chance to think beyond our self-imposed boundaries.”

The Appleton Education Fund and the EMMA Nobel Education Fund provided grants enabling the students and area community members to participate in this conference which began in 1963. The Nobel Foundation, which awards the Nobel Prizes, granted permission for this annual science conference using the Nobel name.
