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.
Midwestern History Association Conference in June: the response to the call-for-proposals for the Third Annual Midwestern History Association conference was overwhelming! From those proposals, 80 presentations have been selected for the final schedule, which can be found at the link below. Please spread word of the conference to your friends and colleagues and join us in Michigan on June 7.
