Political History Research Group seminars

The Political History Research Group offers occasional seminars and events, to which all are welcome.

Edinburgh is one of the most active centres for the study of political history. Our members research within every historical period (from ancient to contemporary) and within a wide range of geographical contexts, covering all aspects of the subject from intellectual history to the study of elections. Our links with political scientists in the School of Social and Political Science provide interdisciplinary perspectives.

Time and location

Times and venues differ depending on the format of the events. Please check details in the table below.
