Mississippi Studies at Luther College (Decorah, Iowa)

John Kim traveled to Decorah, Iowa on September 14–16, 2018 for the first Associated Colleges of the Midwest meeting on Mississippi Studies. There was lots of enthusiasm for launching an ongoing research and educational initiative that connects colleges and universities to institutions, museums and activists along the banks of the Mississippi River that spans the Associated Colleges of the Midwest and the Associated Colleges of the South. We are in the planning stages for a larger, more inclusive follow-up conference to strategize on funding the initiative. More to come.
