IAS Top corners

The entirety of the Institute for Advanced Study's filmed presentations are available through both the University Libraries Media Archive and on our YouTube channel; we encourage you to spend some time browsing!

Available videos include our IAS Thursdays public presentations, talks and panels from events the IAS has cosponsored, and archives from the Bat of Minerva, a public-access program presenting long-form interviews with scholars, artists, and professionals from a wide range of public life. 

Our archives are expansive, but not comprehensive. If you're looking for a presentation given by a particular scholar or group but can't find it through the Libraries or YouTube, please feel free to email us at ias@umn.edu with as much detail as you know, and we'll attempt to locate it.

The majority of our presentations are filmed for public use, though occasionally speakers will request their talks not be made public.

We encourage use of publicly available videos in classrooms and other educational and cultural venues. Our videos are licensed for noncommercial reuse, though we ask that you notify us via e-mail when using these materials.
