AMIS 10th Anniversary Celebration

AMIS logo (Facebook)

In 2023, AMIS is celebrating its 10th anniversary marking the first intake of students to the Master of Arts programme in 2014. We will recognize this event by showcasing AMIS research and by celebrating AMIS students and alumni. We have invited former affiliates and international visiting scholars to present their work and we will be launching a new MA thesis award.

We are happy to present Prof. Nando Sigona as our international keynote speaker.

Please come and join us!
