The AIAS Fellows’ Seminar is a session of seminars held by the AIAS fellows or other speakers proposed and invited by the fellows in the AIAS Auditorium on the Mondays stated below.
At each Fellows’ Seminar, one fellow will introduce the fellow speaker responsible for the seminar. The fellow speaker will present and discuss his/her current research and research project, closing off with a question and discussion session. The duration of the seminar is approximately 45-75 minutes, and if possible, a coffee break is embedded in the seminar. Finally, after the seminar session, AIAS invites participants to continue discussions in a more informal setting in the AIAS Hall.
What are the topics of the seminars?
As the AIAS fellows come from various academic fields of study, the topics of the seminars will vary accordingly. For further information about each seminar please see below.
