About GECC

The Graduate and Early Career Caucus (GECC) seeks to address the concerns and issues of graduate students and scholars in the early stages of their careers. As an official caucus of the History of Science Society (HSS), GECC offers mentoring programs and organizes sessions as well as social events at the annual meetings of the HSS. The chairs and officers are graduate students and early career members of HSS, who serve as liaisons between the standing committees of HSS and the student/early career constituency.
