HSS San Fran 2015: Everything You Need to Know August 25, 2015

Posted by emmiemiller in Annual Meeting, conference, hss, HSS links.

It’s that time of year again! By now you know if you’ve made it into the 2015 HSS Annual Meeting program, and you’ve started searching anxiously for funding, scrolling Orbitz for the best flights and counting frequent flyer miles. The GECC blog will do its best to keep you up-to-date on all of the pertinent info about deadlines for networking activities, events (and whether there will be alcohol present), and give you easy access to the HSS webpage.

A few reminders…

Scholar profiles: HSS GECC wants to feature HSS early careerist and graduate student scholars here on this blog! It’s a great way to stir up some interest in your panel or talk and get people excited! Plus, we love to hear from you. Check out our previous scholar profiles. If interested, email hss.gecc@gmail.com.

Volunteering: HSS is still looking for volunteers to help run the show during the annual meeting in San Fran. Email volunteer@hssonline.org if interested or see our link. This is a great way to meet people, and you will have your registration fee waived or reimbursed (if you’ve already paid it). It’s an easy way to save a few bucks!

Accommodations: If you are a graduate student with or without membership in HSS, there may still be available rooms in the conference hotel at the reduced graduate student nightly rate! Get in touch with HSS by emailing info@hssonline.org ASAP to make your reservations at the Westin St. Francis.

Mentorship: Keep in mind that the sign-up for the Graduate and Early Career Caucus Mentorship program is now available. Sign-up is easy, quick, and will ultimately connect you to a more senior scholar at the upcoming meeting in November.

Funding: Also, do not hesitate to apply for funding! The deadline is coming up quick. HSS allots travel grants to professional scholars and graduate students to assist them in getting to conference destinations every year. There are also Dependent Care Grants available. Deadline: September 30, 2015.

CV Review: Going on the job market? Need to polish up your CV, Cover Letter, or ask an expert tips on interviewing? The History of Science Society’s Graduate and Early Career Caucus invites you to have our CV review workshop. Have a professional in your field look over your job materials and give you instant feedback IN PERSON at HSS). Sign up now!


Stay tuned for more information about the GECC Business Meeting, mentorship events, networking receptions and mixers in the coming weeks.
