Leeds research in British Academy booklet

Professor Clive Upton’s 'Voices' partnership with the BBC and the British Library is one of the case studies featured in a new booklet published by the British Academy.

Dr Chris Forde's and Dr Robert Mackenzie's multi-cultural Barnsley research project also features in the booklet.

The projects are two of just ten case studies selected nationally as an example of 'impact' research.

President of the British Academy, Sir Adam Roberts launched the booklet, 'Past Present and Future: The Public Value of the Humanities and Social Sciences' in the House of Commons, as part of Universities Week on 17 June.
