This week the Institute says goodbye to five fellows who will join the still growing community of AIAS Former Fellows. Next week on Monday 1 February, the commencement of the seven new fellows will ensure that new talent and new scientific field of studies are added to the thriving, international environment at AIAS. They bring studies as diverse as investigations into the matrilineal toothed whales; the fictional and non-fictional intermedial narratives and the impacts of land use and climate changes on aquatic ecosystems.

Individual research, collaboration extension

With fellowships lasting from one up to three years, the new fellows have time to develop their research projects as well as networking with their local AU collaborators and the fellows at AIAS.
