The NCSA Graduate Student Caucus supports the scholarly and professional development of graduate students and early career academics by organizing sessions and social events at the annual conference. In addition to panel discussions, past Graduate Student Caucus events include round tables on the Academic Job Market, Editing & Publishing, and Digital Humanities. 

Throughout the year, the NCSA website offers opportunities for graduate students to post blogs, book and conference reviews, and other material. 

The Graduate Student Caucus welcomes new members, as well as ideas for future events and website content.

2021 Call for Participation
In today’s digital age, Wikipedia is becoming an increasingly popular resource. Because so many people turn to the online “free encyclopedia” for information, scholars around the world are joining efforts to improve the accuracy of Wikipedia entries. In light of this, the Graduate Caucus is organizing a brief Wikipedia edit-a-thon at our upcoming conference, Discovery, in Sacramento, CA (March 11-13, 2021).

The Wikipedia edit-a-thon will be held on Saturday, March 13th during the open lunch, 11:45-1:15pm. Location TBD.

If you are interested in participating, or have any questions, please email
