Annual Lecture Series

The BAA holds regular monthly lectures on the first Wednesday of each month between October and May.  The lectures are open to all and provide an opportunity for professionals, students and independent scholars to present research that fall within our areas of interest.  The lecture series provides a chance to have a broad range of topics and subjects within this area and allows the Association to invite speakers on topical and current issues that have a bearing on its interests as well as those that relate to its core area of specialism.  We aim to cover British and European topics with an art historical, archaeological, architectural, historiographical elements.
