IAS Research Postgraduate Welcome Event

20th October 2009, 19:00 to 21:00, Penthouse Suite, Collingwood College

The Institute of Advanced Study and its Research Postgraduate Group warmly invite all research postgraduates to a welcome event on Tuesday, 20 October, 7.00 to 9.00pm, in the Penthouse Suite, Collingwood College.

The IAS is a prestigious, ideas-based Institute, which brings together some of the world’s finest researchers from every discipline to examine themes of major intellectual, scientific, political and practical significance; it stands for new thinking through inter-disciplinary dialogue across all disciplines. Each year's research follows a different theme and the theme for 2009-10 is being "Water".

Working within the IAS, the Research Postgraduate Group meets regularly (at least twice a term), to hear papers from IAS fellows or from fellow research postgraduates, and to engage in discussions about topics of an interdisciplinary nature and/or the challenges and rewards of engaging in interdisciplinary research. The group is an excellent opportunity to engage with the leading edge research of the IAS, and to network constructively with other research postgraduates approaching similar ideas from different disciplinary angles. The group also receives invitations to private Fellows' seminars within the IAS, as well as advance notice of IAS lectures and future activities.

The welcome event on 20 October will give you a flavour of the current group's activities.

If you wish to attend this event, please register in advance by emailing the IAS.
