About Us

   

Welcome to the homepage of the Transatlantic History Student Organization, the first graduate student organization dedicated to transatlantic history.

 

Founded in 2000, the Transatlantic History Student Organization (THSO) is a graduate student organization for anyone interested in transnational history or comparative history that deals with encounters, discoveries, and interaction across frontiers and borders situated in the countries and continents surrounding the Atlantic Basin.  The primary purpose of the organization is to provide UTA history graduate students with a forum for the discussion of issues relating to transatlantic studies.  THSO hosts the Annual Graduate Student Conference on Transatlantic History, which has proved to be an excellent venue for the discussion of the interrelations between peoples and ideas of the Old and New Worlds.  The symposium has attracted scholars from both sides of the Atlantic.  We function as a social and networking organization. Meetings, socials, and other planned events provide an opportunity to get to know peers and professors in a more relaxed, non-classroom setting.  Throughout the academic year, we hold brownbags where faculty members or other invited guests present topics ranging from professional development to graduate student prospectuses.
