Research Seminars / Capita Selecta

The Capita Selecta research seminars are hosted by the GIA. We have an exciting programme lined up with some excellent visiting speakers, as well as the usual presentations of current research by our staff and students. Please make a note in your diaries and reserve the time to attend: it is after all only 2 hours each month, but 2 hours filled with the most recent research, followed by excellent discussions.

We would like to especially encourage students from the GIA and Ancient History to attend as this is a fantastic opportunity to hear about cutting-edge research and join in discussions about methods, theories and interpretations, in a very friendly environment.
