Yuletide HUMS was first held in 2012 and every year since then. The event is an opportunity to have a cross-disciplinary series of presentations that look at Christmas in an academic yet light-hearted manner. This year’s programme is as eclectic as in previous years and draws on experienced speakers from four different Faculties.
