There was a group of artisans and historians that for a time held some symposium on specific themed subjects, called the 'Alexandrian Symposium'.  These 'event's were held in modern dress, instead of SCA dress, as it was treated as more an academic activity, such as at a modern university.  I miss those symposium, they were great.
