Activity: Participating in or organising an event typesParticipation in conference


This was the first of two events that I organised as part of the Norman McLaren centenary celebrations that took place across Scotland in April-June 2014. The symposium featured an introduction by Prof Chris Breward, four papers by speakers from the UK, Ireland, and the United States, and a roundtable discussion chaired by Dr Jonny Murray. The event was financed by the University of Edinburgh's Challenge Investment Fund.
