HGSA Conference

From Local to Global: History at Every Scale

For 18 years, Loyola's History Graduate Student Association (HGSA) 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.

We are pleased to share the Call for Projects for our 2023 Conference, “From Local to Global: History at Every Scale.” This year’s Conference will be held in-person at Loyola’s Lakeshore Campus. The exact date is still pending, but the conference will be held in mid-February 2023

We invite graduate students, scholars, and researchers of any affiliation to share their projects related to the topic of scale in historical and humanities-based research. We will consider submissions of research papers, Digital Humanities projects, Public History projects, museum exhibits, documentaries, and other formats.
