‘The Sheffield branch of the Classical Association, a national body promoting the study of Classics and Ancient History, dates back to 1921, one of the oldest in the country. Until 1990 the branch was an integral part of civic life in Sheffield, closely connected to the former Sheffield University Departments of Ancient History and Classical Archaeology, Latin, and Greek, while remaining a very distinct institution run by and for the people of the city. Since 2010 a restored working committee of the Sheffield Classical Association provides continuity to this historic Sheffield institution with a regular programme of talks, walks and school days on all things ancient and classical!‘

Annual Women in the History of Philosophy Lecture 'Women make up only a minority of philosophers, and an even smaller minority of philosophers in the history of the profession. Indeed, it can be easy to get the impression that women's contributions to philosophy are only a very recent phenomenon. But this is not true. The Sheffield Philosophy Department has decided that it wants to increase awareness of the work of women throughout the history of philosophy, and so is now sponsoring an annual lecture on Women in the History of Philosophy.' Also other events which can be open to the public.

'Each month we host a talk - usually by a notable scientist or skeptic, but not always - in a relaxed and friendly manner. In a pub. The subjects of the talks will vary considerably but they will typically be about a common belief that either cannot be justified by the available evidence, or that can actually be demonstrated to be false by the available evidence. The talks are followed by an informal Q&A / discussion and that is followed by more beer. Because we're in a pub. We usually hold these talks on the third Monday of each month at 7.30 pm.'
