A three-year project to implement an agricultural humanities minor.

Morningside University will use NEH funding to implement the Rooted: Integrated Humanities and Agriculture project to establish an agricultural humanities minor. This minor will focus on the interrelation of humanistic inquiry with agriculture and food studies and will be part of a new agricultural and humanities pathway. The university is located in Siouxland, the crossroads of Iowa, Nebraska, and South Dakota, where supplying the nation with food has been woven into the rural fabric for generations. Therefore, a central tenet of the minor will be a humanities-based exploration of rurality—what it means to live close to the land in rural communities and on working farms. Rooted will be relevant to the realities of the lives of rural students, and will use a place-based pedagogical framework that recognizes that students learn best when the knowledge they acquire in their courses is directly connected to the way of life, background, and culture that roots them to their physical homes.
