11th Annual History Graduate Student Conference

The Northern Illinois University History Graduate Student Association holds an annual conference where both NIU and visiting graduate students present and discuss their research. Panels will be held all day, with some light snacks and refreshments available to attendees.


This year, the HGSA is pleased to announce that the speaker for the Alfred B. Young Keynote Address will be Professor Susan Lee Johnson of the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Professor Johnson is a historian of the North American West who discusses questions of gender, identity, ethnicity, place, and emotion during the settling of the West. Her book "Roaring Camp: The Social History of the California Gold Rush" has been the recipient of the Bancroft Prize and the W. Turrentine Jackson Prize.
