Since 1970, the Association for the Study of Connecticut History (ASCH) has been promoting the study of the history of Connecticut via meetings and conferences.  In 1974, ASCH began publishing Connecticut History, with a title change in 2014 to Connecticut History Review. It is the only academic, peer-reviewed, journal devoted to the history of Connecticut.  Our meetings, conferences and the Connecticut History Review serve many different constituencies:  academic scholars, museum and historical society professionals, history buffs, graduate students, and educators.
