"Iowa and the Importance of State and Local History"
Riney-Kehrberg considers how moments in Iowa history contribute to our understanding of the complexity within broader national and international narratives. Through four key examples—woman suffrage, Buxton, Iowa, Varnum v. Brien, and the 1980s Farm Crisis—she demonstrates the rich insights that can be gleaned through state and local history.
"The Arc of Iowa History"
Conard studies the individuals, institutions, and movements that have driven the publication of Iowa history. Beginning shortly after statehood, the essay traces the arc of Iowa history to the present, showing how major publications and the organizations that published them have adjusted to changes in public interest, financial support, and historiographical shifts.
