Introduction, by Patrick Cox

Our first Roundtable takes on the pretty salient question for the launch of H-Midwest, “Why Midwestern Studies?” Working to establish a “new” multi-disciplinary field can have kind of a Frankenstein-ish feel to it: slicing and dicing up parts of existing fields—lit study, economics, history, sociology—and stitching them together in a form we claim is different from everything that once was. Inevitably, that new monster will be different from what has come before, but the trick is in making sure the new thing is different enough.
