Institute of Advanced Study

Other Activities


In addition to activities organised around the annual theme, the IAS sponsors or endorses a series of parallel inter- and intra-disciplinary activities on behalf of Durham departments, the University and external bodies, including public lectures and debates, international conferences, strategic policy briefings, master classes, and prestige publications.


The IAS's annual London debate is the highlight of the Institutes's annual calendar and allows the IAS to showcase its annual research theme each year. The event has also become a major alumni reunion event for Durham, and draws large audiences.

This event has been filmed since 2012 and you can find all recent event footage below.
