Graduate and Early Career Committee Open Forum: Advocacy
The AHA Graduate and Early Career Committee invites graduate students and early-career professionals to a forum to discuss issues of common interest. This year’s GECC forum explores the diverse ways that history graduate students and faculty understand the relationship between scholarship, advocacy, and activism. Speakers will discuss the multiple ways that historians can use their expertise to foster informed discussion and debate about contemporary social and political issues. They will also reflect on how their research impacts their involvement in a range of activities on their campuses and in their communities.
