Student Conferences

Since 1982 the Viking Society has held an annual one-day Student Conference, usually in the Spring term (February or March) at a UK university. Speakers may be academics from the UK and abroad and advanced postgraduate students. All undergraduate and postgraduate students, and interested members of the public, are welcome to attend for a small fee. Conferences are advertised to members and on this page.

The next conference will be held on February 27th, 2016 at the University of Birmingham.
