IAS Fellows' Public Lecture - On the Animated GIF

A GIF (Graphic Interchange Format) is a string of computer code with particular characteristics, although in everyday usage the term describes looped animations, often sampled from a commercial source, formatted to play on a variety of digital platforms. Considered solely as animations, GIFs are fairly rudimentary. Many exist simply to catch your attention, like spinning disks revolving in the wind outside a shop. This lecture is presented by Professor Anna McCarthy, New York University

Scales of research, social anthropology meets epidemiology

The Scale of Things Public Lecture Series
This lecture is delivered by Professor William Sax, Heidelberg University, Germany.
