British Academy unveils Autumn events programme

News •

The British Academy has unveiled its Autumn programme of over 20 events which highlight fascinating new research and shed light of a range on human and social issues.

Highlights include Thomas Cromwell Re-imagined, featuring author Hilary Mantell, actor Ben Miles and BBC4's Professor Diarmaid MacCulloch. This panel disussion will take place at the Priory Church of the Order of St John, London and will explore and discuss the elusive but important Tudor.

Meanwhile Classics? with Mary Beard will allow one of Britain's best-known classicists the chance to reflect on the study of Classics today. 

The next series of The British Academy Debates will explore one of the most urgent challenges of our time: energy and the environment. Four events – in London (two), Swansea and Edinburgh – will feature leading speakers considering how we can meet the energy needs of a continually growing world population.

And the UK's national festival of the humanities returns in November for 10 days of big questions, searching discussions and engaging activities for all ages.
