The Art History Graduate Students Society (AHGSS) provides students with opportunities to engage and interact with faculty, students, and staff in the Department of Art History, on both academic and social grounds. It allows for cross-disciplinary collaboration through its seat on the GSA Council and through partnerships in conferences and event planning. Benefiting from its capital advantage, AHGSS endeavours to foster close, working relationships with other artistic and cultural institutions in Ottawa and beyond. AHGSS promises to enhance student life and enrich the graduate experience.
