(21 February 2013)
Following its university-wide consultation and announcement of its 2014-15 theme, ‘Emergence’, the Institute of Advanced Study has identified a number of potential subthemes:
- Emergent Systems and Relations (Robin Hendry)
- Emerging Orders (Alice Hills)
- Emergencies, Tipping Points and Fragility (Sarah Curtis)
- Emergent Experience (Nicholas Saul, Angela Woods)
Any staff member interested in any of these sub-themes is encouraged to make contact directly with the coordinators above.
Ideas for activities under the Emergence theme should be submitted using the following proforma:-
If colleagues have an idea for a research activity that does not fit under any of the sub-theme headings, but is innovative and interdisciplinary, they are still encouraged to submit an activity proposal.
Proposals do not need to be fully formulated ideas and plans, but summary statements that highlight creativity, relevance and outcomes. The details of the theme and the timescales mentioned above are also available to view at http://www.dur.ac.uk/ias/emergence/timescales.
Nominations for Fellowships are also being accepted. These can be submitted in conjunction with an activity proposal to specifically include a Fellow as a part of the programme of work/activity or nominations may also be submitted independently from activity proposals. Applications should be made using the following proforma.
The deadline for returning proposals of activities and / or fellows is 18th March 2013.
All pro-formas are available to download from the IAS website on the ‘Annual Themes’ page under ‘Emergence’.
Questions and queries should be directed to the IAS administrator, Linda Crowe.
