We intend to celebrate! From its pioneering status in 2006, the IAS has grown in terms of influence and intellectual authority. Still one of only a tiny handful worldwide, we are now widely acknowledged as one of the world’s leading centres of interdisciplinary research across the whole spectrum of disciplines. Contact us today to help us plan for this landmark birthday.

Join the debate - The IAS at Durham organises a wide variety of public lectures by Fellows and invited intellectuals, all of which offer opportunities for debate, the sharing of expertise and perspectives, and the expansion of knowledge and understanding.  We encourage you to come to as many as you can and discover new paths to a broader and deeper appreciation of the world, our history and the future.

The IAS is a fusion of specialisms that encapsulates this wonderful university’s commitment to intellectual adventure and its willingness to experiment with new approaches.  The results are always exciting and often spark radical rethinking of complex issues so, get involved today and get even more from the Institute of Advanced Study.
