About the AGHS

The Annual Graduate History Symposium (AGHS) is a yearly conference planned by the graduate students of the Department of History at the University of Toronto. The AGHS brings together students and scholars from across North America to explore major themes and methodological questions in our discipline. This year’s conference is supported by the Canada 150 initiative and explores the theme “Defining the Nation in a Transnational World.” View this year’s call for papers.

Each year’s conference features a keynote presentation and scholars’ roundtable on the conference theme, multiple graduate student panels, and social events, including a conference mixer at the Campbell House Museum. The AGHS also hosts an essay competition for conference participants, co-sponsored by Past Tense Graduate Review of History. The recipient of this award for the best conference paper is published in an upcoming issue of Past Tense.
