Sabhal Mòr Ostaig Research Seminars: Spring 2024

You’re warmly invited to join us at Sabhal Mòr Ostaig (via Zoom) for our new programme of research seminars, starting Wednesday 06 March. We’ve got a great programme lined up, including the very first Sorley MacLean Annual Lecture, and we’d be delighted if you could join us.

All seminars, except for the Sorley MacLean Annual Lecture, will begin at 13:00 on Wednesdays. They will be held in Seòmar Shomhairle, Ionad Iain Noble, Sabhal Mòr Ostaig. Anyone attending online is asked to please join the waiting room ten minutes beforehand to allow us time to admit you into the call (and say hello!). The room will be locked ten minutes after the start of the seminar.
