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.

Due to current requirements for the prevention of the spread of COVID-19, we have currently suspended our public lecture program on campus. 

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