MIASA offers both public lecture series as well as individual guest lectures. The MIASA Public Lecture Series feature MIASA fellows in residence. The MIASA Public Lecture series are primarily directed to faculty, students and non-academic staff of the University of Ghana but also open to the wider public.
The Anton Wilhelm Amo Memorial Lecture is organized annually by MIASA at the University of Ghana. It aims at strengthening the visibility of MIASA on campus and beyond through a high-level annual lecture series, which would be a valued element in the CVs of African scholars in the social sciences and humanities. It is named after the 18th century philosopher from present-day Ghana who taught at the universities of Halle and Jena.
