History Graduate Student Association


Our Mission

The NIU History Graduate Student Association (HGSA) provides opportunities for professional development, fosters academic collaboration, and promote the discipline of history in a supportive intellectual environment. Each fall we host a national graduate student conference, highlighted by a keynote from a distinguished historian. We are currently accepting proposals for the 2019 HGSA Conference, which will take place on the NIU campus, Friday, November 1, 2019. This year's keynote address will be delivered by Professor Daniel Immerwahr of Northwestern University. His talk is titled, “Telling the Story of the Greater United States.”
