Study Kansas History & Culture

Center for Kansas Studies logo

The Center for Kansas Studies at Washburn University encourages the study of the history and culture of the state as a matter of gaining insight into oneself as a product of those forces. The Fellows of the Center are those Washburn faculty who offer courses which focus on the state and who benefit from the interdisciplinary exchange of ideas and resources.

From border ruffians to buffalo commons, from trails to Beech aircraft, from John Brown tosunflower Linda Brown, from General Custer to General Eisenhower, from Carry Nation to Gordon Parks, from dust storms to center pivots—the breadth and depth of the American experience is reflected in Kansas.
