IHC Publications

Over the years the Idaho Humanities Council occasionally has published books and monographs related to special initiatives. And occasionally, the Council has supported publications by other organizations and scholars. In addition to books the IHC has printed several curriculum guides and tabloids related to summer institutes for teachers.

Dishrag Soup

In 2006, the IHC published a collection of recipes and essays about food in an anticipation of a Smithsonian traveling exhibit entitled “Key Ingredients” that toured the state. The book, Dishrag Soup & PovertyCake: An Idaho Potluck of Essays on Food, features contributions by nearly 50 writers. It’s a cookbook for the nightstand.

In 2003, as part of a Council-conducted project exploring Idaho’s Hispanic heritage, the Council published LatinoLatinos in Idahos in Idaho: Celebrando Cultura, a collection of historical articles, interviews, and essays about Idaho’s growing Latino population.
