IAS 2015-16 Theme

Leave a comment

Following university-wide consultations, the Institute of Advanced Study has chosen Evidence as its research theme for the academic year 2015-16. This theme engendered enthusiasm across all three Faculties. The theme of Power also received substantial support, and the IAS notes the potential for this to be addressed as a sub-theme in relation to Evidence.

On 29 January 2014 the Institute will host a Scoping Meeting (at Collingwood College, 12.30pm). The major aim is for groups simply to discuss ideas and explore common ground. The IAS Directors will also put forward some (provisional) sub-themes to assist discussions. Colleagues who are interested in submitting activity proposals are therefore asked to provide the IAS with a short outline of ideas (no more than 500 words) by 20 January 2014.

Proposals and any queries should be directed to Linda Crowe .
