International Students of History Association (ISHA) 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. 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.

Throughout the academic year, the various member sections take turns organizing several seminars and an Annual Conference. These events usually last several days with up to a hundred student participants from around Europe, and comprise workshops, discussions and presentations on various topics, but also offer a cultural programme with visits and excursions.

ISHA’s Journal Carnival is a yearly publication and is open to contributions from all students of history and related sciences (not only ISHA members).

However, the only way of really understanding what ISHA likes is to attend an ISHA-event. Information on the upcoming events can be found on the website and in the ISHA Newsletter (subscription here:
