The Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study, where I’m spending the 2012-13 academic year, has a fascinating weekly lecture series in which each fellow presents his or her current work. Most of these are open to the public, and they’re well-worth the time. You’ll find a list of all the fellows, with descriptions of their projects and date of lecture, here. Robot-insects, black holes, DNA-inspired compositions for wind ensemble, global literature: only a few of the topics.
