An afternoon with Lodge, Calder and Childe

27 April 2012; Meadows Lecture Theatre (William Robertson Wing, The Old Medical School).

Join us for an afternoon with three leading Edinburgh lights in the early to mid 20th century: Richard Lodge, Professor of History, 1899 to 1925; William Moir Calder, Professor of Greek, 1930 to 1951; and Vere Gordon Childe, Abercromby Professor of Archaeology, 1927 to 1946.

The afternoon will be structured around three papers, with discussion following each (and the chance to nip in and out of the Meadows Lecture Theatre), and a reception to pursue issues in depth in the McMillan Room afterwards.
