Abstract

Despite being a state mandated requirement for elementary, secondary, and even some college students – and therefore, a teaching requirement for many historians – state history as a field has become historiographically inert. In this essay, I describe how I am trying to reimagine and rethink the genre, focusing on Minnesota.
