Social media, AI and 'fake news' are among the many challenges facing journalism today. Ahead of an IAS and South College expert panel event on 5th March (2.30pm) to discuss the future for journalism with Bridget Kendall, Jo Adetunji, Monica Grady and Ian O'Flynn, our own expert, Prof Tim Luckhurst shares his thoughts ahead of our joint event.
The IAS has a busy term ahead and details of seminars, public lectures, workshops from both our Fellows and projects (major projects and research development projects) are listed in our Term Card.
The IAS welcomes its Epiphany Term (2024) Fellows to Durham. Several of our Fellows will be collaborating across the University with colleagues on two major IAS projects (Understanding Offence; and Justice and Artificial Intelligence) or joining forces with other colleagues on additional research until the end of this term.
The IAS supports, promotes and grows new and creative interdisciplinary ideas that transform our perspectives in challenging and provocative ways. We provide time, space, and resources to exchange/integrate ideas, knowledge and skills. We are a home to an inclusive, diverse and supportive community of scholars from Durham University and across the world. We are now launching our call for 2025/26 Major Projects – an investment of up to £55,000 per project in major interdisciplinary research ideas
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.
