Anna Morpurgo Davies Lectures

In 2011, the British Academy and the Philological Society agreed to collaborate to hold an annual event – alternating between a panel discussion and a lecture. The lecture was first delivered in 2013, and subsequently named after Anna Morpurgo Davies Hon DBE, FBA (d. 2014), a former President of the Society.
