Finding the Lost Region IV: Midwestern History Conference

Finding the Lost Region IV: Midwestern History Conference

Date and Time

Wednesday, June 6, 2018
8:00 a.m. - 8:30 p.m.

Location

  • DeVos Center » 122E - Loosemore Auditorium

Description

As globalization continues to transform politics, economics, and culture, historical scholarship focuses on oceans, borderlands, and transnational networks.  While invigorating, this trend risks understating the importance of region, so pronounced in recent American politics.  What about the freshwater oceans that surround Michigan?  The interior borderlands still shape American cultural geography in the twenty-first century?  What about the importance of the Midwest to the world as a whole over the centuries?  Hosted for the fourth 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 scholarship.

Free and open to the public, registration required. Please click here to RSVP.
