British Academy lectures


For over 100 years the Academy's public lectures have communicated the best scholarship in the humanities and social sciences to both specialists and general audiences.

Lectures are given in established series - many of them associated with endowments received by the Academy. There are now 31 series of lectures, and 3 series of symposia - listed below in the order in which they were (or will be) first delivered. (Fuller information on the remit, frequency and nomination procedure of each series.)
