The IAS aims to support both focused and free-ranging research initiatives across the entire University.
Under the leadership of our director, Professor Marsha Meskimmon, the IAS will run three themes over the academic year in addition to a vibrant Open Programme. Each theme will be managed by a team of academics from across campus under the guidance of an academic lead.
Current themes 2019/20
Upcoming themes 2020/21
Festival of Ideas: Transitions
Transition will move away from traditional models of invited lectures and deliver a more innovative compendium of activities as the Festival of Ideas: Transitions. Activism for change is at the core of this and through these events we seek to effect transitions to socially just, sustainable futures.
