Center for the Study of the Civil War in the West

Western Kentucky University has launched the Center for the Study of the Civil War in the West. The director is Glenn LaFantasie, and, from the mission statement, they have some pretty ambitious goals:
The mission of the Center for the Study of the Civil War in the West is to establish Western Kentucky University as the world’s premier institution for research, teaching, and public dialogue on the history, culture, and contemporary implications of how the Civil War was experienced by Americans living west of the Appalachian Mountains. The Center is WKU’s primary vehicle to promote initiatives in scholarship and regional service.
No publications as of yet, but I've certainly bookmarked the page for future reference.

Thanks to author Joseph Reinhart for the tip.
