The big questions we seek to answer
IAST is dedicated to interdisciplinary research. However, most of our researchers have trained within a single disciplinary framework, from which they reach out in their work to researchers from other disciplines.
What they have in common is a dedication to exploring questions of central importance to human society in the 21st century.
The themes outlined here provide an indication of the kinds of question we believe represent some of the most fruitful areas of such interdiciplinary collaboration.
The list is not exhaustive and will evolve as we develop our own research, both individually and collectively. We welcome contributions to this evolving process from both our current community of researchers and those who would like to join us in the future.
