In 2010, the Institute began recording the lectures from its Thursday Speaker Series. Since then, the archive has grown to house more than two dozen lectures dating to 2010. The talks feature groundbreaking topics from top scholars at the University of Michigan and institutions in North America and Europe.  

The online archive includes audio or video recordings of the lectures, which are available for streaming. Access is generally restricted to University of Michigan affiliates. Recordings are generally posted the week after the event.
