Throughout the year the Institute hosts visits from distinguished scholars, public intellectuals and artists. These visits form part of our annual program of public lectures, masterclasses, symposia and workshops.

What's on?

The Institute of Advanced Studies brings researchers from all over the world to The University of Western Australia, with the aim of further enhancing UWA’s global research profile.

The IAS have made the difficult decision to cancel our public events for the coming month. 

We apologise for any disappointment this may cause, however we believe that this is the most responsible course of action at this time, as the wellbeing of our community takes priority.

The IAS records many of our public lectures, which are available to listen to online.

During this pause in our events schedule, why not visit some of the talks already held this year by visiting our 'Past Talks' page.
