ISHA is short for International Students of History Association and is an international non-governmental organization of students of history. Our goals are to facilitate communication and provide a platform of exchange for students of history and related sciences on an international level.
This academic year (2015/2016), the International Board and Council has been busy solving the technical problems of the association. We are on our way to finding a long-term solution to improve the communication within the network and outside of it. Having a functional website is essential to that task! With this interim-website, we hope to reach out to more sections and students and to share the ideas and ideals of ISHA until we can present you the new, functional website of and for our network.
On this website you can find news from the association, information about ISHA member sections and their locations, details on ISHA’s seminar events and its annual conferences as well as ISHA’s yearly publication Carnival.
ISHA was founded 1990 on the initiative of Hungarian history students to bring students from all over Europe together and to bridge the border between East and West after the fall of the Iron Curtain. ISHA believes that international perspectives constitute an important part of every student’s education. Membership is open for students (undergraduate through PhD) from all disciplines and backgrounds with an interest in history and historical science.
