History Graduate Student Association


Works in Progress (WIPS): Present your current work before peers and professors for constructive feedback. Panels typically held twice per year. Contact Dr. Kooi with interest.

Annual CV Workshop: Encouraged for all graduate students, and a prerequisite for mock interviews. Students submit CVs and receive feedback from professors. Internal HGSA workshops can also be arranged.

Annual Mock Interviews: A committee of professors will conduct a full campus interview for graduate students who sign up in advance. Students will receive critique on their performance in the interview as well as on their CVs. Open to all graduate students, and especially recommended for advanced students.

Conference Committee: Professional development through programming experience. Prospective members can join the committee by contacting the chair. The conference requires tremendous planning, fundraising, and interdepartmental coordination efforts, all valuable professional experiences. Newer students are encouraged to begin observing and participating early, so as to learn leadership roles from experienced committee members.

Panels by Request: HGSA members offer a variety of potentially helpful experiences, from preparing conference presentations, to publishing and editorial insight from publications such as Civil War Book Review, to simply writing at the graduate level. Ideas and requests for talks and panels can be made by contacting any HGSA officer.
