The Association for the Study of Connecticut History (ASCH)

The spring conference this year is titled “Teaching Connecticut through Oral History and Popular Culture” and will be held at the Connecticut Historical Society on May 19, postponed from our original March 24 date so that people feel free and not torn between it and the Marches For Our Lives. Details on the conference can be found here.  

Our Fall conference, Uncomfortable Conversations: Religion and Politics in New England,” was held November 4, 2017, at Manchester Community College. Attendees enjoyed a host of papers on really interesting topics.

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 1975, ASCH began publishing the Connecticut History Review, the only academic 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.
