MISF meets regularly on the third Saturday of the month, 10:00 a.m. (Talk starts at 10:30). We meet at Hosmer Library, 4th Ave. and 36th St. in Minneapolis. There is a small parking lot and lots of on-street parking available. Hosmer is served by the #11 bus, but there are three other bus routes within 1/2 mile, including two high-frequency routes. Guests and interested persons are always welcome at these meetings. For more information, check out our meeting calendar.

About Us

The Minnesota Independent Scholars Forum is a group of individuals who support research and scholarship both outside and inside institutions of higher education. Membership is open to anyone who shares this goal.


The Minnesota Independent Scholars Forum (MISF) exists to foster scholars, whatever their formal credentials or academic involvement. MISF strives to be encouraging and critical, always aware of what distinguishes good scholarship. We encourage all projects of disciplined intellectual inquiry.
