A Place of Learning: Repairing Minnesota’s Humanities Center, Strengthening Humanities Impact Statewide

Renovation of the headquarters building for the Minnesota Humanities Center, focusing on replacement of the HVAC system.

The Minnesota Humanities Center (MHC) serves as a critical hub for public humanities scholarship, engagement, and resources throughout the state. MHC produces impactful programs and grantmaking in diverse and geographically dispersed communities, touching 36,100 people in 34 municipalities statewide in 2017-18 alone. Since moving to its current home in a historic building on St. Paul’s East Side, MHC has provided a unique venue for critical thought, deep connection, and continuous learning for program participants and external clients. This building (and the land it is on) is the foundation to MHC’s success, both programmatically and fiscally. However, it is in urgent need of repairs and updates to stop ongoing damage from water intrusion and to replace an outdated, inefficient HVAC system. An estimated $3.53 million is needed for renovations. Nearly $2.2 million has been secured, and a $350,000 NEH challenge grant will support replacement of the building’s outdated HVAC system.

Echoes of War

Veteran-led public discussion programs in three Minnesota communities, with a focus on war, place, and memory through World War I, and the Vietnam, and Iraq wars.

Echoes of War, a project of the Minnesota Humanities Center, will explore the multiplicity of Veterans’ experiences by examining the roots of war in a place and its past and the echoes of war in a people and their memories. The wars in Vietnam and Iraq will be studied in the context of colonial conflicts and World War I using literature, memoir, and personal histories. The project includes presentations by and discussions with visiting scholars including renowned poet Brian Turner, Pulitzer Prize winning author Viet Thanh Nguyen, and noted historian Ron Milam. 10 NEH Discussion Leaders will participate in an intensive residential preparatory program that is grounded in the literature of war and training in discussion facilitation. A series of public discussions will be conducted in St. Paul, Northfield, and Winona, Minnesota.

Echoes of War will be co-lead by Dr. Susannah Ottaway, a professor of history at Carleton College, and Trista Matascastillo, Humanities Center program officer and 16-year Veteran. Ten NEH Discussion Leaders will participate in an immersive 5-day residential preparatory program that will prepare them to lead subsequent public discussions.

A three-part public discussion series will be held at the Minnesota Humanities Center, St. Paul, and at Carleton

Innovative Communities & Stories of Innovation

To support partnerships with the Minnesota Council on Black Minnesotans, the Council on Asian Pacific Minnesotans, the American Indian Affairs Council of Minnesota, the Chicago Latino Affairs Council to tell representative stories from these communities. This program will be supported by four interactive multimedia websites and a communications initiatives to publicize them in the community. Outreach programming will include professional development workshops, public discussion groups, and public media communications.

Minnesota is often viewed as the land of German, Swedes, and Norwegians, as a land settled by Lutherans, Catholics, and a few Baptists. This identity is reinforced by homogeneous stereotypes present in media such as A Prairie Home Companion and in films such as Leatherheads and the Cohen Brother's epic, Fargo. These treatments fail to depict the real Minnesota. The Minnesota Humanities Center proposes partnering with the Minnesota Council on Black Minnesotans, the Council on Asian Pacific Minnesotans, the American Indian Affairs Council of Minnesota, and the Council on Chicano/Latino affairs starting in 2010 to tell representative stories -- Stories of Innovation -- from these oft marginalized Minnesota communities. Programs to share these stories include web sites for each of our four council partners, public programming to highlight and convey these stories, and a public outreach campaign to address the complex question of Minnesota identity.

Building America: Minnesota's Iron Range, U.S. Industrialization, and the Creation of a World Power

Two one-week workshops for eighty school teachers to explore the role of Minnesota's Iron Range in American history.

Minnesota's Iron Range supplied late 19th and 20th century America with the iron needed to fuel industrialization, economic expansion, and military might. During the summer of 2010, the Minnesota Humanities Center will offer two week-long, residence-based workshops that use this unique region of Minnesota to address themes and issues central to American history. A National Endowment for the Humanities Landmarks of American History and Culture: Workshops for School Teachers program, these workshops will help K-12 educators increase their knowledge and appreciation of Minnesota's Iron Range, a region significant to American history and culture, but often overlooked. The workshops will provide teachers with training and experience in the use and interpretation of this historic landmark region, and make available the material resources and archival evidence unique to this significant place in American history and culture.

Absent Narratives and Necessary Conversations

The development of programs that explore Minnesota's ethnic heritages and what it means to be an American, including community conversations, a web site, podcasts, a public conference and a grant program.

In times of crisis, we must consider what is most fundamental about our culture and work to preserve that which we hold dear. One risk of the economic crisis of 2009 is that Minnesotans and Americans will lose sight of the ideas and experiences that bind them. Such a time is upon us -- a time to examine and expand the meaning of what it is to be an American and a Minnesotan. The Minnesota Humanities Center (MHC) requests funding to support community conversations and additional programming that will highlight its rich ethnic heritage, namely the accomplishments and contributions of the states original residents, the Dakota, Ojibwe, and Ho-Chunk; the state's African American peoples, and the state's newest residents of Hmong, Somali, and Latino peoples. Programs to accomplish this include a web site, public events and podcasts, a public conference, and a re-grant program.
