IAS Salon - IASIS: 'Expertise'

2 December 2010, 11.55 PM - 2 December 2010, 11.55 PM

Thu 2 Dec 2010, 17:00 - 20:00, Verdon-Smith Room, IAS, First Floor, Royal Fort House.
' IASIS'- this contrived term combines connotations of a healing process through dialogue and a pathological condition - an appropriate vibe for IAS' equivalent of the Enlightenment salon. The idea is that at least twice a term, in the Verdon-Smith room at the IAS, there will be an open house invitation to come along, have a drink of some kind, meet other interesting people and (amongst other things) think over a general issue relevant to our common research and intellectual concerns.

The suggested theme for this IASIS is 'Expertise'.

  • What is it?
  • How do we prove it?
  • How does the evidence for this differ between the disciplines? 
  • What does it mean to our status as academics and scientists?

All welcome, but please do let Susan (susan.jim@bris.ac.uk) know if you intend to come along.
