  • HRH The Duke of Edinburgh attends the launch of the feasibility study for the Scots at War project at the Royal Museum of Scotland (the project is officially started in 1994).
  • Professor Peter Jones visits India in March, supported by the British Council, to meet with former Fellows and potential future Fellows.
  • A colloquium on Joseph Priestley is organised on behalf of the 18th Century Group, an inter-faculty group which meets regularly at IASH under the title of the ’50-Minute Club’.
  • Following the success of Europe Redefined in 1991, IASH organises Europe: Ways Forward in association with the Europa Institute from 30 October to 1 November. Speakers include Sir Leon Brittan, Russian Ambassador Ivan Silaev, and Norbert Walter. The chair is Sir Rodric Braithwaite, former UK Ambassador in Moscow.
  • The Institute also supports a colloquium on Medieval Dialectology and a one-day conference titled 1492: Ferdinand, Isabella and the Catholic Monarchy in Spain, co-organised with the National Library of Scotland and the Society for Renaissance Studies.

Martin Fitzpatrick: “My experience at IASH was wholly positive. My period in Edinburgh has shaped the direction which my research and writing has taken since then and for the foreseeable future.”

Diana Henderson: “The Institute under Peter’s guidance has become a priceless asset to the University, ‘The Jewel in the Crown’ as Sir David Smith used to say. Universities the world over cast envious eyes on the Institute.”

Sir Ludovic Kennedy: “The real benefit of the Institute was that on each occasion it gave me a much needed break from my own house, where I normally write, and all the distractions in the way of telephones, shopping, and the usual domestic commitments made on one. I found that the isolation afforded me was a very great help in my work.”

Terence Penelhum: “What the Institute does, and does splendidly in my experience, is provide the humanist scholar with circumstances we all crave but find it hard to arrange… a sense of scholarly community, a gentle reminder that one’s research is serious business but in no sense a burden – just the right combination of solitude and community that the humanist scholar needs.”
