The purpose of this project is to make a significant contribution to the history of independent scholarship in Minnesota. Although independent scholarship in Minnesota is presumably as old as the state, the purpose here is to focus on the history of the Minnesota Independent Scholars Forum (MISF), the part that we know best. Ideally, this project would spawn others of the same type, focused on other parts of the general history of independent scholarship in Minnesota.

The purpose of this project is to foster an educative, public dialogue concerning issues of refugee settlement in Minnesota over the past 50 years. The medium proposed for effecting that purpose is a “PopUp” (temporary and portable) exhibit that may be transported from one public venue to another throughout the state.
