History Graduate Student Association

Founded in 1997, the History Graduate Student Association at Florida State University is a recognized student organization. It represents the graduate students of the History Department at Florida State University. It promotes graduate education by acting as a liaison between faculty and graduate students, provides opportunities for graduate student professional development, and supports fellow graduate students through social events. Our biggest event is an annual conference in the spring. All students enrolled at the graduate level in the History Department of Florida State University are welcome to become members of the HGSA. There are no dues or activities required of members.

Annual Conference

The HGSA at Florida State University has sponsored an annual conference since 2008, typically in late March. The conference brings together graduate students from history and other humanities and social science departments at Florida State and other institutions. It allows “up-and-coming” scholars a congenial environment to build interpersonal networks within the discipline of history and beyond and to gain experience presenting their research in a professional setting. For more information and to keep up to date with the latest on the conference visit our website or follow us on Twitter and Instagram.
