• Representations of the Midwest in popular culture or by non-Midwesterners
• Rejection or confirmation of the Midwest as the agricultural Heartland
• Controversies about the definition or geographical boundaries of the Midwest
• Midwestern ecologies
Proposals should be roughly 300 words, briefly explain the significance of the subject chosen and sources available, and be sent to Patricia Oman athcpress@hastings.edu. The editor of the volume will be Jon K. Lauck. All proposals are due by August 1, 2015. If a proposal is accepted, the resulting chapter, not exceeding 6,000 words (including notes), shall be due June 1, 2016.
