British Academy Debates

Launched in 2014, the British Academy Debates show humanities and social sciences ‘at work’ – helping us understand the challenges we face as societies, as economies and as individuals. They demonstrate how new insights from research can challenge and question existing assumptions, illuminate dilemmas, help us make the complex intelligible, explore possible new directions, choices and possibilities – and so push forward political and public debate around some of the greatest challenges of our times.
