Next Group Meeting this Thursday 13th November, at Museum of Scotland Cafe

We hope to meet for a coffee or tea at the National Museum (Chambers Street) balcony cafe this Thursday,  this will be a brief get together event as its a busy time of the year for most. The timing will be from 12.15 – 1.45pm – do drop by if you are free, there’s no specific agenda just time to get together – and to plan where to meet for our Xmas talk and mince pies event in December!  See you all there.


Women & Architecture IASH Seminar

Next week Clarisse Desmarest (Daiches Manning Memorial Fellow at IASH) will be giving a seminar on “Female patrons and architects in late 17th/early 18th century Scotland, Sir William Bruce’s circle of ladies”. Details of her project just below:

Women and architecture in 18th century Scotland

Her project on ‘Women and Architecture in 18th century Scotland’ involves exploring women as architectural patrons and women as present in architecture. Building on several recent works acknowledging the social and political role of several Scottish noblewomen in the pre-Union period, she focuses on their aesthetic and architectural contribution.
