  • Scots at War concludes with its ninth seminar.
  • The European Enlightenment concludes with a series of seminars attended by many of the 71 Fellows appointed over the life of the project.
  • In May, IASH hosts a colloquium on the history of secret intelligence in the Second World War and the Cold War, with speakers including David Stafford, Wesley Wark and Rhodri Jeffreys-Jones. The papers from the colloquium are published as a special issue of Intelligence and National Security in 2000.

Stipe Kutlesa: “For me it was one of the most beautiful periods in my professional life.”

Paul Shore: “For the rest of my life I’ll recall this period as one of intellectual stimulation, wonderful relationships with colleagues and a supportive environment freed from the usual constraints associated with full time service as a professor… The Institute not only provided me with a chance to write and think about my work, but it fostered continuing friendships that have opened doors to new disciplines and geographical settings.”

Pál Ács: “The scholarly atmosphere of the Institute is absolutely free, open, informal and friendly… The Tuesday lunches are very delicious and excellent events to talk with Fellows from all over the world. I could find not only very good colleagues but real friends among them.”

Tatiana V. Artemieva: “My stay in Edinburgh was very useful and important for my work as a scholar and also as an organiser of scholarly activity in St Petersburg. The IASH staff created a very friendly and hospitable atmosphere, which allowed us to feel as free as at home.”
