Institute of Advanced Study

Fellows' Seminars

Fellows' seminars take place on Monday lunchtimes in the seminar room at Cosin's Hall.

Places are limited and so any academic colleagues interested in attending a seminar should contact the Institute in advance to reserve a place or telephone 42589.

The aim of these seminars is to develop new thinking on the big issues that are of current concern/interest for the Fellows. Each Fellow is asked to present a core idea that informs their current work, or a problem that they are tackling, that could benefit from cross-disciplinary thinking. These seminars are informal and designed to encourage discussion. Details of each seminar will be published the week before the scheduled date.
