2011/12 Events 

Under the umbrella of an IAS annual theme, a series of wide-ranging inter-, intra- and multi-disciplinary events are organised by academics at Durham or by those holding one of the Institute's fellowships. Current or forthcoming events can be viewed here or under the events listing page. All past IAS events are listed on the Archive page.

From 2010-2012 the IAS is concentrating on the subject of 'Futures.' In the first year (2010-11), IAS Fellows and Durham academics discussed the problems of predicting and responding to the future. In this second year (2011-12) the IAS is marking the successful completion of five major themes - The Legacy of Charles Darwin, Modelling, Being Human, Water, Futures - and is using the year to reflect on how the IAS can build on the model of such research projects to inform and drive Durham's research programme into future areas of excellence. The IAS has developed its 2011-2012 Fellowship programme around the following intra- inter- and multi-disciplinary ventures that could become real centres of excellence for Durham in the future:
