At the core of the IAS is the IAS Fellowship and Fellows who contribute to the Institute’s annual theme. Whilst at the IAS, Fellows participate in a wide range of events including seminars, workshops, conferences, exhibitions, and public lectures, the majority of which are addressing cutting-edge topics under the umbrella of the Institute's annual theme and are listed in the Institute's Annual Programme. Fellows engage and forge strong links with one another and usually with at least one department at Durham and integrate within their Colleges. All IAS Fellows deliver a public lecture to inform an interested public who want to learn more about their cutting-edge research.
