Renaissance Collections seminar

These interdisciplinary seminars, which take place at least twice a year, are designed to take advantage of the internationally renowned collections of materials from the early modern period (c. 1400-1750) held in Edinburgh. Seminars are generally held in galleries, museums and libraries around Edinburgh and involve hands-on examination of the objects under consideration, with experts invited from outside the university to contribute to the discussion

Details of the 2011-2012 programme will follow shortly.
