Meet the researchers shaping our world
Join us this June as we throw open our doors for the British Academy’s annual two-day Summer Showcase, a free festival of ideas for curious minds. Alongside a programme of talks, workshops and performances, 12 of our researchers will bring their work to life – from livestreamed global connections and an immersive VR experience, to calligraphy workshops and a conspiracy kitchen. Meet the brightest minds in history, psychology, sociology and more, and be inspired to think differently about the world around you.
Friday 17 June, 9am–3pm and 6–9pm
Saturday 18 June, 11am–5pm
Friday 17 June, 6–9pm
Come along to a special evening view of the Summer Showcase and explore the exhibits, enjoy stimulating talks, get advice on research funding applications, and network with researchers at our complimentary drinks reception.
