Calendar of events

ArchSoc Archaeology seminars

Centre for Late Antique, Islamic and Byzantine Studies seminars
The Centre for Late Antique, Islamic and Byzantine Studies seminars combine select sessions of the Classics, Islamic and Middle Eastern Studies and History of Christianity Research seminars with the Byzantine Studies seminars. Everyone is welcome to attend.
The Classics research seminars provide a forum for the exchange of ideas and the promotion of new research and debate among the research community, both within and outside the University. All are welcome.
Classics postgraduate seminars
The Classics Postgraduate seminars enable postgraduate students to gain valuable experience and practice in delivering research papers and taking questions on their work.
Edinburgh Centre for Global History Graduate Workshops
The Edinburgh Centre for Global History Graduate Workshops provide an excellent opportunity for doctoral students and early career researchers to meet and discuss their research in an informal setting. They take place throughout the academic year and are open to all.
First Millennia Studies Group
The First Millennia Studies Group (FMSG) is a discussion forum for all aspects of archaeology in the first millennia BC and AD in Scotland and beyond.
FMSG is open to anyone interested in the time period and the theories and methods of its study. The Committee hopes it offers a useful forum for trying, developing and discarding ideas at a live event; a testing ground, which we feel cannot be achieved by a more anonymous online audience and the possibility of being recorded. This distinguishes FMSG from other research seminars.
The History and Games Lab
The History and Games Lab explores games as a medium for historical research, teaching and public understanding of history, including fostering practical collaborations between historians, game designers, and other practitioners who engage with games.
Scottish History seminars
The Scottish History research seminars take place throughout the academic year and are open to all.
Student Seminar series
The Student Seminar Series is co-organised by Edinburgh University History Society and Retrospect Journal. It is a student-led initiative that gives students at all levels of study at Edinburgh an opportunity to present short papers on their research.
