Special seminar, followed by party in the Swallowgate Class Library

Papers are followed by discussion. All are very welcome. All seminars (except for the first) take place on Fridays, starting at 4.05 p.m. Because of likely high audience numbers this year seminars will take place in School 5, in St Salvator's quad (it may be possible to revert to Swallowgate 11 later in the semester, if audience numbers allow; that change will be advertised at the time if so).
