“Midwest mythology is a tangled labyrinth of rural complexities. From the rugged cowboys traversing the land to the persistent spirit of the pioneers and the consistent exploitation of ourselves, both who we are and who we have become as a society. This Midwestern land and aesthetics are romanticized with the timelessness of the frontier. The mythology is rooted in legends of individualism, persistence, and historic conquests. “Here in the Mysterious Elsewhere” is an interdisciplinary exploration of Midwestern stories and culture.
