After an absence which went on for far too long, we are pleased to say we restarted our seminar series in October 2022. Over the pandemic we discussed extensively what to do, and considered trying an online version, but we felt strongly that discussion at a live event is what makes FMSG a useful forum for trying, developing and discarding ideas. We did not feel that online events, with a more anonymous audience and the possibility of being recorded, offers the same feeling.

In a slight change to previous years, we restarted in the spacious Lecture Theatre B of the 40 George Square Lecture Theatres, as Covid is not going away, and hope this will make our audience happy to return.

We already have lots of ideas and offers of papers, and the programme for 2022-23 is full, but if there’s anything you’d really like to hear or want to offer, do let us know. And we’d be glad to hear of any other thoughts on FMSG.

We very much look forward to seeing many of you over the 2022-23 series!
