British Academy Conferences
Bringing together scholars from around the world to consider and evaluate new research in the humanities and social sciences
British Academy Conferences bring together scholars from around the world to present, discuss and consolidate new research in the humanities and social sciences. Held either at the British Academy’s own premises in London, at other British venues, or online, these landmark occasions offer students, scholars and specialists a chance to expand their networks and learn about the latest developments in their field.
A new strand of British Academy / Wellcome Trust Conferences, designed to foster discussion and debate on health and wellbeing related themes, will commence in 2022.
