Eleven perspectives on how the humanities and social sciences enrich our lives. Eleven Fellows of the British Academy in conversation. This issue of the ‘British Academy Review’ has been produced as part of the British Academy’s Prospering Wisely project.
Prospering Wisely is a multimedia publication and series of events that aim to kick-start a national conversation about the place of humanities and social science research in our society. This is the introductory video.
Event to launch 'Prospering Wisely', held on 12 February 2014 (venue: Royal Society). We all yearn to live in a modern, thriving society that improves people's well-being and supports essential freedoms, but how does humanities and social sciences research help us achieve this? And how does it help us address some of the biggest challenges we face in an increasingly uncertain world?
