BIPS Spring Roundtable 2019

12 April @ 12:30 pm - 4:00 pm


Time and date: 12.30pm – 4pm 12 April 2019

Location: St John’s House, University of St Andrews, South St, St Andrews.

The Roundtable will start with a sandwich lunch at 12.30 in the Undercroft, then presentations in the New Seminar Room. Coffee will also be served. We ask for a £5 contribution to cover catering costs, payable in cash on the day. This annual event showcases the academic research undertaken by recent recipients of BIPS research and travel grants. A small number of our funded scholars will present papers and answer questions about their recent research.

This event is being held in St Andrews in order to tie in with the Symposia Iranica’s Fourth Biennial Early Career Scholars’ Conference and the roundtable will end in good time to attend the conference. BIPS is proud to act as the principal sponsor to the event. For more information please see the Symposia Iranica’s website.

Professor Andrew Peacock: Persian manuscripts in Indian collections
