The IAS welcomes its Epiphany Term Fellows

The Institute of Advanced Study is pleased to welcome its second cohort of 2020/21 Fellows. The Institute’s programme for visiting Fellows continues in virtual form in response to the pandemic. Fellows’ lectures and seminars will continue in this form across the term, as will the development of collaborative research projects with Durham colleagues. Two major interdisciplinary projects are taking place during Epiphany: Quantifying the Global Risk of Volcanic Eruptions to the Airline Industry will consider the problem of volcanic eruptions in the context of global flight paths; and Negotiating Landscapes of Rights will examine the negotiation of rights around common resources through a series of case studies from around the world. Further information about these projects can be found at
