Distinguished visiting scholar programme

The distinguished visiting scholar (DVS) programme brings world leading academics to the School of Classics. Initially designed on a two-year rotation, it is now an annual highlight of the School’s research activity. Each visit is different, but typically the DVS is in St Andrews for up to a week. During their stay, they meet with staff and postgraduates to discuss common research interests, present a seminar paper, and co-host a workshop or similar event on a theme of their choosing. 

The 2020 DVS visits were cancelled due to COVID-19.
