Call-for-Proposals: New Book on Midwestern Politics
May is Minnesota Museums Month, and May 18 is International Museum Day. H-Midwest participates in this celebration of the preservation and presentation of the state's culture with the initiation of a new blog, Museums of Minnesota. Throughout the month, directors, curators, other staffers, and volunteers at museums and historical societies around the state will be posting about their work, artifacts in their collections, exhibits, and the rich resources they house.
The Spring 2017 issue of The Annals of Iowa is now available.
Earlier today, H-Midwest Board member Jon Lauck appeared on "Central Standard" on KCUR in Kansas City to discuss the topic "What is the Midwest?" It was a fun and informative half hour on our favorite subject. A lot of interesting (and some surprising) definitions of Midwest came up, and quite a bit of sterotype bunking was heard.
