The State of Indiana History 2000: Papers Presented at the Indiana Historical Society's Grand Opening
The opening of the Indiana Historical Society's new headquarters and the closing of the century presented an opportunity to reflect on the status of Indiana history as it is taught and practiced today. In July 1999 a stellar group of eighteen historians gathered for a conference titled "The State of Indiana History 2000," resulting in this publication. The presenters discussed the evolution of their subject, its major themes and interpretations, the topic in its present guise, and what the future may hold. Academics, public historians, kindergarten through twelfth-grade teachers, and the general public will find these papers interesting and provocative.
