Watch or Listen to Previous Events

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 and 2016/17 can be found by following the links on the left. The current year 2017/18 can be found below.

Video footage of some lectures are also captured below. Recordings of Fellows' public lectures are available below by Fellowship years as well as on their specific profiles pages see:https://www.dur.ac.uk/ias/fellows/iasfellows/.

Facing Out: The New Humanities

Views: 147

Facing Out: The New Humanities is part of the first national Festival of the Humanities: Being Human. Durham activities engage the public in two major research projects, which are based on new encounters and collaborations – between medieval and modern science, between ancient authors and later readers. These encounters produce new research questions and results in areas of fundamental public interest: the nature of the universe, human health, and the experience of literature and art. Projects are linked through a shared methodology of interdisciplinary collaboration, and through interactive engagement with the public.
