Proposals for British Academy events
The British Academy operates a varied programme of events, for a range of audiences. It welcomes proposals for the following types of events:
- Public events communicating humanities and social sciences scholarship
- British Academy Conferences
1. Public events communicating humanities and social sciences scholarship
Such events should seek to communicate new research and perspectives to non-specialist audiences, and to demonstrate the value of humanities and social sciences scholarship. Of particular interest are events that draw on more than one of the humanities and social sciences disciplines represented by the Academy.
The principal vehicles are the Panel Discussion and the 'In Conversation' event.
Please note that the planning of the Academy's spring and summer 2013 public events programme is now complete, and no additional proposals for events to be held in January-August 2013 will be considered. However, proposals for public events to be held in autumn 2013 are most welcome: the deadline for such proposals is 8 April 2013.
2. British Academy Conferences
Such events, held over one or two days, should seek to be pivotal events, of lasting academic significance in their field. Proposals of an interdisciplinary or multidisciplinary nature are especially appropriate, and suggestions for subjects with policy implications are welcomed.
The deadline for submission of proposals for conferences to be held in 2014 has now passed. A call for proposals for conferences to be held in 2015 will be posted on the Academy's website in November 2014.
The Academy has a full programme of academic lectures, given in established series. The giving of an Academy lecture is by invitation only. The Academy does not seek proposals for further lectures, either as one-offs or as new series.
Funding for academic workshops convened to advance specific research objectives is available through the BA/Leverhulme Small Research Grants scheme.
