Warburg Institute Online Events


While our events taking place at the Insitute are currently postponed we are going to be bringing a number of them to you online instead. 


Book and Print Initiative Seminars

The Book and Print Initiative was founded in 2017 to bring together scholars of books, printed material, and printing, at all career stages, across the School of Advanced Study (SAS). It is an umbrella for new and existing projects. As part of the UK’s research centre for the humanities, it provides a national focal point for the interdisciplinary, global study of word, image, and other written content from before the print era (manuscripts, palaeography, codicology) through to its future (digital humanities).

More to come in the autumn term.


Tea Time Talks

Tea Time Talks provide a forum for Warburg research fellows and academic staff to meet each other, introduce their research, and discuss some of the problems and questions that their work addresses.

More to come in the autumn term.


Work in Progress

The work in progress seminar explores the variety of subjects studied at the institute. Papers are given by third-year PhD students, research fellows studying at the Institute, visiting fellows and occasionally invited international scholars. 

More to come in the autumn term.


Language Courses


Beginners Renaissance Latin 5-Day Intensive

2 - 8 September, 3pm - 5pm

(please note this course is fully booked - if you would like to be added to the waiting list please email us at warburg@sas.ac.uk)

The course is designed for beginners and focuses on Latin texts from the fourteenth to the seventeenth century, drawing on a wide range of sources - the sophisticated Latin of the humanists, various forms of technical Latin (medical, philosophical, theological, etc.), and macaronic jumbles of Latin and the vernacular. One of the principal aims of the course is to help students develop the ability to read primary sources in the original Latin.




Classical Greek - Beginners

Wednesdays, 7 October - 2 December 2020, 6.30pm - 7.30pm

The Warburg Institute offers an eight-session online course across the Autumn Term in Classical Greek for complete beginners. A principal aim will be to equip students with an essential set of linguistic navigational tools, which can serve as a springboard for further study of both language and literature. In addition to Latin, Greek was known to and used by writers of the early modern period. 




Classical Greek - Intermediate

Mondays, 5 October - 30 November 2020, 6.30pm - 7.30pm

The Warburg Institute offers an eight-session online intermediate language course across the Autumn Term 2020, aimed at those who have some grounding in Classical Greek. It is expected that students will already have a decent grasp of nouns, pronouns, adjectives and verbs (active forms in the present, future, imperfect and aorist tenses, and present, future and aorist participles).
