To extend the reach of IAS activities beyond those who are able to attend on the day, the IAS records many of its public lecture events, as well as other select workshops and seminars which have broad appeal. We are in the early stages of developing our collection of video recordings, however we do have a substantial record of audio recordings. We hope that over time this collection will grow and become a valuable resource for many different audiences. Copyright of these recordings remains with the individual speakers.
Audio Recordings from 2008/09, 2009/10, 2010/11, 2012/13, 2013/14, 2014/15, 2015/16; 2016/17, 2017/18, and 2018/19 can be found by following the links on the left. The current year 2019/20 can be found below.
