In November 2012, the British Academy held its first Language Week, drawing together a variety of events to explore and champion the learning and use of languages in schools, universities, policy-making and public life. One of the week’s main highlights was the British Academy Schools Language Awards ceremony, where schools were recognised for their creative language teaching.
As usual, this issue contains articles derived from the British Academy’s programmes of events and publications. But the issue concentrates on the Academy’s support for academic research.
