We want as many people as possible to be involved in Ancestral Studies. Currently, we are designing a programme of events that we hope will provide opportunities for learning about Ancestral Studies in many different ways.
We held our first event in November 2016 - a workshop that brought together academics from the University of Glasgow to discuss Ancestral Studies and its research potential. In January 2017 we held a second workshop with representatives from institutions and organisations working in ancestry related areas. We sought their ideas and opinions about Ancestral Studies to ensure that the degree programme is relevant to activity in the heritage sector today. We hope that this meeting will also form the foundation of a research network to be instituted in the near future.
In the future we intend to hold a series of day courses, a lecture series, public outreach events and, ultimately, a conference.
We will publish details of our events on this page as soon as they are confirmed.
