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.
Prospering Wisely argues that we need to think about the nature of 'prosperity' in much broader terms than its usual purely financial definition. Drawing on expert views from influential academics such as Nicholas Stern, Mary Beard and Peter Hennessy, it explores the many ways in which 'prosperity' is dependent on the ways the humanities and social sciences enhance our lives, as individuals and as a society.
The launch of Prospering Wisely is followed by The British Academy Debates, public discussions around the UK which explore some of today's toughest challenges.
