Lectures

.

MIASA offers both public lecture series as well as individual guest lectures. The MIASA Public Lecture Series are organized by Interdisciplinary Fellow Groups (IFGs) in collaboration with partner institutes at the University of Ghana. Each series is dedicated to a particular topic, which is discussed by the fellows of the individual IFGs from the point of view of their disciplines and research areas. 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.
