Call for IAS Projects and Fellowship Nominations: process and timeline for 2019/20
The Institute of Advanced Study (IAS) aims to support Durham's academic staff in developing ambitious, novel interdisciplinary research. The Institute has moved from a single annual theme to a new framework in which four high-quality, interdisciplinary projects will be supported each year. Resource will be provided for the buyout of each project PI (at the same level of IAS Fellows, up to £8,000 for 3-months), and up to five Fellows per project may be nominated. Full details about the process, projects and nominations are available here.
Levitation: The Science, Myth and Magic of Suspension - New Book by Former IAS Fellow Peter Adey
Former IAS Light Fellow (2013/14) Professor Peter Adey explores the idea of levitation within cultural, scientific and spiritual lives. From science to illustration, poetry, philosophy, law, technology and a wider popular, spiritual and visual imagination, Levitation casts the levitator as a far more vulnerable figure than we may have thought.
