Seminars and Lectures

There is an extensive and lively programme of seminars given by St. Andrews postgraduates, staff and guest speakers from outside this University, while occasional public lectures are given by historians from other Universities. You are welcome to attend all such seminars and lectures. We believe that you will benefit from hearing papers by other scholars, whether in your own field or in other areas of history.

Such seminars and lectures are advertised on the Postgraduate Notice Board, on the first floor of St Katharine’s Lodge, and on the School website. Currently there are seminars in Intellectual History, Mediaeval History; Middle Eastern History and Iranian Studies; Reformation and Early Modern History; Modern History and Scottish Historical Studies.

There are also two postgraduate forums (in Mediaeval and in Early Modern and Modern History) for postgraduates at all levels to give short papers and talk generally about their research. They also provide the opportunity for postgraduates to meet other students socially.

MLitt students and PhD students are expected to attend relevant seminars regularly.
