Returning to Grand Rapids for the ninth year, the Hauenstein Center, in collaboration with the Midwestern History Association and the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Foundation, is excited to announce the 2023 Midwest History Conference. This conference assembles a broad array of historians, literary scholars, and cultural commentators dedicated to rebuilding the field of Midwestern studies, a field largely neglected by scholars in recent decades, to rebuild the intellectual infrastructure necessary for the study of the American Midwest to flourish.
