The Institute of Advanced Studies warmly invites you to attend the second workshop organised through our Time Theme, which will take place on Wednesday 27th January. All very welcome – see below for further details and how to register.

Time, Disaster and Decision-Making. A Trialogue

This workshop is a virtual forum bringing three IAS Visiting Fellows into a ‘trialogue’ on the role that time plays in the modern “risk society”. Both disasters and the response to them unfold in time, and the speed (or, in other words, the shortening of time) with which the response can be formulated and implemented can make a critical difference.

The Fellows joining for the event are:

Professor Sir David Omand (Kings College London)

‘Spy time: the search for chronophages’

Dr Jason von Meding (FIBER, University of Florida, USA)

‘Disaster as a Time-Delayed Manifestation of Structural Violence’

Dr Natalia Janson (Loughborough University)

‘The mind as the process in time: mathematical perspective’

To register for ‘Time, Disaster and Decision-Making’ please contact Laura Dale:, a link to the event will be sent in advance – all are very welcome.
