The British Academy Summer Showcase
Join us each June for our annual Summer Showcase, a free festival of ideas for curious minds. Featuring talks, performances and more, each year the Summer Showcase brings the best new humanities and social sciences research to life for a diverse and wide-ranging audience.
We were thrilled to be opening our doors once again for the first in-person Summer Showcase since 2019. Alongside a programme of talks, workshops and performances, 12 of our researchers brought their work to life – from livestreamed global connections and an immersive VR experience to calligraphy workshops and a conspiracy kitchen.
Our free week-long festival in June 2021 featured online talks, discussion and demonstrations, plus self-guided audio walks. The online events are available to watch on our YouTube channel.
