Indiana University Bloomington

History Graduate Student Association

The History Graduate Student Association is an independent, student-run organization that works to build community, provide advocacy, and foster the intellectual development of the history graduate students at Indiana University. We organize events that encourage interaction among the graduate students, and between the faculty and the graduate students. Once a year, we also host the Paul Lucas conference to showcase graduate student work in history at Indiana University and other history departments in the region.


The HGSA undertakes to represent the interests of graduate students entering the profession of history. This organization is open to all students currently enrolled in the graduate history program at Indiana University.

The HGSA is dedicated to serving the needs of history graduate students and fostering community within the history department by sponsoring professional, educational and social programs for both graduate students and for the department as a whole. HGSA also provides a strong voice of advocacy for its members in both departmental and university affairs. HGSA meetings are held on the third Friday of each month at 5 P.M. (location varies). All members are welcome and encouraged to attend.
