About This List

Podcasts published by the University of Aberdeen, Scotland.
  1. The Gifford Lectures—held regularly at the four ancient Scottish universities of Edinburgh, Glasgow, St. Andrews and Aberdeen—were established under the will of Adam Lord Gifford, a Senator of the College of Justice, who died in 1887. His bequest allows the University to invite notable scholars to deliver a series of public lectures on themes related to ‘natural theology’, broadly construed. The 2018 Lectures held in Aberdeen were delivered by world-renowned biblical scholar Professor NT Wright (University of St. Andrews) under the overall title "Discerning the Dawn: History, Eschatology and New Creation".
  2. The University of Aberdeen Café MED events allow our top researchers and clinicians to discuss how current research is being translated into improved treatments and care in an informal café setting.

Part 1: The History The Doric tongue so common in the North-East is part of the Scots Language. But where did this language come from, and what makes the Doric special? Our two academics Professors Smith and Millar guide the discussion. Part 2: The Present North East Scots has experienced a tumultuous time of late. Join Sheena Blackhall the famed Doric poet and our two academics Professors Smith and Millar to explore how the Doric came to be the way it is.
