HSSA strives to create, maintain, and encourage a social and intellectual community for postdoctoral scholars, visiting scholars, visiting student researchers, and graduate students in the humanities and social sciences.

How we do it

HSSA Events

Community Matters

Advances in technology have long been changing the way scholars work in terms of teaching, research, and administrative duties. A famous example is the appearance and then widespread distribution of printing. Another one, seemingly more mundane but a fixture nonetheless, is the blackboard, which was introduced into the US from Europe at the beginning of the 19th century.

Humanities and Social Sciences Association (HSSA) is a group of researchers in the humanities and social sciences. Our events foster a sense of community, organize academic and social events, and offer resources for career development. "Community Matters" is the group's article series where we publish on new developments or problems that concern the experience of being a scholar in the humanities and social sciences.
