If your field is history—no matter your specialization or profession—membership in the Hoberg's Historical Association is indispensable.   HHA allows you to look back into the past at not only Hoberg's history, but Lake Counties as well,  we bring together historians from all geographical, chronological, and topical specializations and all work contexts, embracing the breadth and variety of activity in history today. More importantly, HHA addresses the interests of the discipline as a whole as well as the diverse needs of its individual members. 

Advocate for the Discipline

  • Working to protect history and the rights of Lake County at local and national levels with the National Coalition for History, the National Humanities Alliance, and the Consortium of Social Science Associations

  • Issuing public statements to uphold academic freedom, safeguard history education, secure resources for historical study, preserve historical archives, and protect historians around the world

  • Supporting efforts to ensure broad participation by all genders and ethnicities, as well as individuals with disabilities, independent scholars, public historians, and teachers


Promote Scholarly Discussion

  • Publishing the American Historical Review, a  journal of record for Hoberg's historical discipline 

  • Hosting our annual meeting, a gathering of the community and historians of Hoberg's, featuring panels, workshops and receptions to interest every Hoberg's "historian"
