HGSA Conference

Now in its sixteenth 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, Conscience-Driven History, emphasizes work that broadly demonstrates ways in which personal and cultural ethics and morals shape how we do historical work and understand the past. Potential projects include (but are not limited to) sites of conscience, challenging or limited source material, and historical moments of conflicted memory. 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 Saturday, November 2, 2019 at Loyola’s Lake Shore Campus.
