In a bid to extend the reach of IAS activities beyond those who are able to attend on the day, the Institute of Advanced Study is now beginning to record many of its public lecture events, as well as other select workshops and seminars which have broad appeal. We are in the very early stages of developing our collection of audio and video recordings, but we hope that over time this collection will grow and become a valuable resource for many different audiences. Copyright of these recordings remains with the individual speakers. These recordings should not be reproduced in any format without the speakers' written permission.
Recordings from 2008-09, 2009-10 and 2010/11 can be found by following the links on the left.
