Transatlantic Seminar Series

The Transatlantic Seminar is designed to promote informed discussion of current issues and research on American and European politics, economy, and society and (especially) transatlantic relations.

The Seminar is held weekly, usually Friday between 13:00 - 14:30, and is hosted by Edinburgh Politics & International Relations. We have an extensive archive of video webcasts of past Seminars that you can view here.
