Phi Alpha Theta History Honor Society is a national honor society devoted to the study of history through the encouragement of research, good teaching, publication, and the exchange of learning and ideas among historians. Established in 1921 at the University of Arkansas, it seeks to bring students, teachers, and writers of history together for intellectual and social exchanges, which promote and assist historical research and publication by our members in a variety of ways.  The organization also sponsors a biennial convention, allowing undergraduate and graduate students to present their research in a national forum.  To date, it has inducted more than 350,000 members.
