History Graduate Students' Union, or HGSU, is a representative association for the history graduate students at the University of Calgary. We represent and advocate for all graduate students in our department and wish to foster an inclusive and engaging community. 

Social event tomorrow night (February 6, 2018)! Come and join us to have fun, meet new people and get away from the books for a moment. As always, do not hesitate to contact if you have any questions:, or via facebook or twitter. 

U of Lethbridge GSA asked if we would post their CfP, so if you are interested, please contact them ASAP: as the deadline for submission has officially passed. 

All students are de facto members, though it is completely up to the individual as to how much they'd like to participate in the various HGSU events and communications. Our executive council consists of graduate students whom have been nominated and elected to their positions. Currently, the positions are as follows:

President - Louis Reed-Wood

Vice-President Finance - Scott Dumonceaux

Vice-President Academic - Shawn Brackett

Vice-President Communication - Jessica Tannenbaum

VP-Social - Kayla Grabia

Secretary - Rory Woruniuk

We meet monthly to discuss issues affecting history graduate students and to plan our events, lectures, and conferences. Some of our recent events are board game/pizza nights and trips to local historical attractions. Each year we host the Bow River graduate student conference; Chiniki Lecture; New Perspectives lecture; and various colloquiums. 

You can find us on facebook and twitter. Our email is Feel free to email us with any questions or concerns.
