21st February 2014


The exact scale and financing of each conference will be discussed in greater detail with successful applicants.


The British Academy, the UK’s national academy for the humanities and social sciences, is currently inviting outstanding proposals for our 2015 conference programme. This presents an exceptional opportunity for UK scholars who can demonstrate academic leadership and vision to run a landmark conference featuring leading-edge research as part of the Academy’s events programme. (Lists of recent British Academy Conferences).

Any UK-based scholar is eligible to submit a proposal. If successful, you will be the academic convenor of the conference, and the British Academy’s staff will handle the administration of the conference, so that you can focus on ensuring the quality of the scholarship presented is of the highest possible calibre.

We are inviting proposals for conferences to be held in 2015. British Academy conferences:

  • are held at the British Academy’s premises at Carlton House Terrace in central London
  • are ideal for up to 135 participants
  • offer the opportunity to bring together a large number of academics from different subject areas
  • include the possibility that a themed volume of essays arising from the conference might be published in the Proceedings of the British Academy series 

The British Academy is looking for proposals for conferences that will be pivotal events and of lasting significance in the field: a chance for leading and emerging scholars to examine current and future issues surrounding novel, dynamic, innovative and exciting subject areas in the humanities and social sciences.


Conferences are to take place at an agreed date in 2015


Any UK-based scholar is eligible to submit a proposal.
