2022 Conference--"Many Midwests"
The Eighth Annual Midwestern History Conference is scheduled for May 19-20, 2022 as a hybrid event. The in-person component will be held in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
Building on last year’s theme of the "Midwest at the Intersection of Past and Present", papers relating to all aspects of the history of the American Midwest are invited. Through this year’s theme of "Many Midwests", submissions that examine and contextualize the Midwest in both place and identity are welcomed. The use of visual aids, digital media, and interactive elements to be incorporated into panel presentations, making them as engaging as possible for a hybrid audience are encouraged.
Proposals are being accepted now through Friday, January 7, 2022. Details are available here.
The Midwestern History Association is lead by scholars and activists from around the United States.
