Postgraduate Scottish History Community Group

The group is open to PhD and Masters’ Students studying a Scottish history topic or anyone else from the postgraduate community who has an interest in Scottish history.

You are warmly invited to join the Postgraduate Scottish History Community Group this semester.

This academic year (2022/23) we have decided to focus on community building and would, therefore, like to bring together a network of people who have an interest in the historical study of Scotland. The group will offer a range of events designed to aid postgraduate students in their academic pursuits and in building a sense of community. We will run hybrid research sharing events, online writing retreats and a couple of reading group sessions. We hope to see you at some of the sessions this semester!

If you have any questions or would like to be added to the mailing list, please contact helen.lowe@ed.ac.uk . If you sign up to the mailing list you will be kept up to date with the group and be sent reminders about group events. You will also be sent the joining links for the online events this semester.
