Guidelines for planning a themed volume in the 'Proceedings of the British Academy' series

Conferences will often provide a valuable basis for an edited volume, however themed volumes do not necessarily need to derive from a conference event. The exception to this rule is British Academy Conferences which will automatically lead to a Proceedings volume.

Volumes should fit within the discipline of the humanities and social sciences. Proposals should focus on an area of research that is advancing rapidly and will be of general enough interest for our wide readership.
