8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.


  • DeVos Center » 122E - Loosemore Auditorium


Bounded by the Great Plains and Great Lakes; known for agriculture and industry; for irenic countryside and great cities; labeled the Breadbasket, the Heartland, and the Rust Belt; the history of the Midwest – its peoples and places, cultures and conflicts, aspirations and afflictions – is the history of America’s most common ground.

Hosted for the fifth consecutive year by the Hauenstein Center in collaboration with the Midwestern History Association, this conference will assemble scholars dedicated to sparking – and sustaining – a revival of Midwestern studies in American historiography. Join us for a diverse array of panel presentations, roundtable discussions, and keynote addresses by leading scholars on the rich varieties of Midwestern history.
