Twenty years ago, the Elphinstone Institute was founded as part of the quincentenary celebrations of Bishop Elphinstone's founding of the university. An integral part of the university's connection to the North-East since then, the Institute has become the UK's leading research centre for contemporary Ethnology, Folklore, and Ethnomusicology.
Watch this space for exciting events throughout 2015 celebrating the Elphinstone Institute's excellent research and dedication to community engagement.
