HGSA Conference

Now in its seventeenth year, Loyola's History Graduate Student Association has hosted an annual conference for history graduate students to share their work, receive valuable feedback, and collaborate on future research. The conference attracts graduate students from across the country who come together to present on a wide variety of topics.

This year’s conference theme, Responding to Crises, looks at how we, as human beings, react in times of hardship. We invite participants to think broadly about what crises are and to consider how our varied backgrounds inform our responses. We welcome new research, academic papers, and primary-source-based projects. Share with us what you've learned and how you adapted to your circumstances. Adherence to the theme is encouraged but certainly not required. In keeping with Loyola’s strong public history tradition, we plan to include contributions that discuss public history work and issues or questions related to professional ethics for historians.

The conference will take place on February 20-21, 2021 through an online platform.
