Summer School 2020
The Sophia Centre Summer School 2020 for the MA in Cultural Astronomy and Astrology
The 2020 Summer School cannot take place at Lampeter as planned owing to the current situation with COVID-19. We will contact you with more information shortly.
The MA has been running summer schools for over a decade and has developed a successful model that comprises a balance of academic discussion and debate, enjoyable social activities and crucial interaction between students and tutors.
The Summer School is open to all students of the MA in Cultural Astronomy and Astrology, all PhD students associated with the Sophia Centre and all MA Alumni. Also by invitation to special guests. The Summer School is supported by the Harmony Initiative.
Mon 13 - Wed 15 July 2020
University of Wales Trinity Saint David in Lampeter, Wales
The annual summer school is our chance to come together, socialise and study. The precise time table is always finalised at the last moment because it depends very much on which students are attending, and therefore who is giving presentations: we try to give any students who are attending and have conducted research projects a chance to present their work.
