Hello and welcome to H-Midwest, H-Net's home for Midwestern Studies. H-Midwest spans all approaches to Midwestern Studies--sociology, literature, history, economics, cultural studies, law, arts--and questions in the broader field of regional studies as well. We will interrogate where, what, and who is "Midwestern," and why. Our aim is to explore the expanding contours of this growing field, and push them where needed. The H-Midwest Board creates features and resources for the field and welcomes your announcements, posts, queries, discussions, CFP's and all things Midwestern.
Take a look around. H-Midwest Roundtables, discussions, and announcements are below. The images of states above will take you to content relevent to each state. We also post CFP's in Midwestern Studies and reviews of books concerning the Midwest published by H-Net. H-Midwest's Book Review Editor is currently commissioning new reviews. If you have something to post and don't see a space for it, don't worry: if it's about the Midwest, we'll make a space for it.
If you'd like to get to get involved as a contributor, editor, blogger, or have suggestions for H-Midwest, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
