The IAS welcomes its Michaelmas 2023 Fellows to Durham to work with colleagues until the end of this term. We are pleased to welcome:
The Institute of Advanced Study (IAS) is a home for growing big ideas. We support a broad and inclusive interdisciplinary community from across the full spectrum of Durham academics, where different perspectives are brought together to develop creative approaches to interesting and important problems. In addition to support for large scale projects, we remain very keen to assist research conversations, workshops, and network building which have the potential to develop into major projects.
The IAS has extended its application deadline for Major Projects and Fellowship nominations from midday 16 March to midday 23 March 2023. We hope this extra time, in what has been a busy term, allows colleagues to submit with all the requisite information. If you have any questions in relation to the process, please contact the IAS Manager, Linda Crowe.
The IAS is supporting two exciting interdisciplinary projects this term: Opportunities in Pollution led by Kim Jamie (Sociology) and Margarita Staykova (Physics) with Fellows David Kneas and Beth Povinelli; and Risks to Youth and Studenthood in Digital Spaces with Rille Raaper (Education) & Mariann Hardey (Marketing) looking at students’ use of social media in the digital landscape, seeking to understand how it promotes student life transitions and identity.
The IAS welcomes its 2023 Epiphany cohort of Fellows, as well as the start of two new major projects, and a series of research development projects this term.
