New Forum for Ideas Launched
(27 August 2008)
Insights is a high quality on-line publication which captures the cutting-edge research hosted at the Institute of Advanced Study at Durham University. Up to twenty distinguished and ‘fast-track' Fellows reside at the IAS in any academic year. They are world-class scholars who come to Durham to participate in a variety of events around a core inter-disciplinary theme, which changes from year to year. Every fellow who visits the IAS writes for this series and the result is a unique collection of thought experiments, innovative research findings, theoretical statements, original reviews, and occasionally more fully worked treatises.
The first two themes to appear in print are The Legacy of Charles Darwin (the Institute’s 2006/2007 theme) and Modelling (the Institute’s 2007/2008 theme). Five papers within Volume 1 (2008) are now available and free to download with topics including human genomics, astrophysics, and carbon markets. New papers will come on-line regularly.
